Default 1995 Mustang oil pressure gauge question...

When I got my 95 GT, the oil presure gauge didnt work. A few times Iv noticed it is working, but never enough to count on it.
I tryed to unhook the sending unit wire and run it to ground, and then turn on the key to see if it moved, and it didnt.
This is telling me the gauge its self is the problem, NOT the sending unit...Correct?

Whats involved with swapping out the OEM gauge?
I KNOW....go with a REAL gauge, but I hate the idea of having the stock gauge reading well below zero, even with a Autometer installed...

Am I just wrong in that grounding the sensor wire, should move the needle, and Im missing something

The factory gauges are notorious for being inaccurate, you'll probably have to remove the dash pod, and get back there to swap out the gauge.
