Default Oil Pressure Gauge - 1981 Bonneville Brougham

The needle on the oil pressure gauge on my 1981 "rests" at 30 lbs. when the ignition is off. When the car is running, the needle is pegged to the right. The local service guy checked the pressure and said that the oil pressure is right on where it should be and that the gauge needs to be replaced.

My question is - Any suggestions where I might look to find a replacement pressure gauge? I've done quite a few internet searches, but so far, no luck.

I would like to find an OEM gauge rather than tack an extra gauge under the dash - which would be my last resort.

I would replace the Oil Pressure Sending Unit BEFORE I would even think of replacing the gauge itself. It might be as simple as a ground issue.
