If the idiot light isn't on don't worry about it. Only way to REALLY tell what your oil pressure is is to install an aftermarket gauge anyway.

Yep and then you can scroll through the speedo/tach/whatever. Back in the day before everyone had GPS and could use that to check vehicle speed, the secret gauge was a great way to set your needle back on after you did white faces. Keep the clear cover off the cluster temporarily, set the odo to speedo and set cruise on a straight stretch of highway. Then just stick the needle on and good.

What was the point of the secret stuff? Was it for ford mechanics and stuff? Maybe for extra information?
