maybe you just have a bad ground at the gauges, clock should always have power

That was it, the ground off the Console harness was loose. Thank you!

now to the oil pressure gauges connections...

Here is what was on the back of the gauge



If I used new copper 1/8" line I'll need one of these



I'd like to go to -4 AN connection an use a stainless braided line.. but looks like I'll need a lot of adapters.

looks like you already have the AN adapter fitting for the gauge... , will you use the original light switch oil sender with it ?

here some Chevy Mechanical Oil Pressure Gauge Information > http://rmcavoy.freeshell.org/Oil_pressure_gauge.ht...

summit and others sell the Braided Stainless Steel, -3 AN or -4 AN line kits for the autometer gauges 1/8 NPT, you could check what kind of fitting it uses and comes with to fit your needs ...

-4 AN > https://www.summitracing.com/parts/atm-3228

-3 AN > https://www.summitracing.com/parts/atm-3235

yes i understand, i never did it personally , always used copper, or nylon tube lines without issues , but i've seen guys using these braided line kits on original GM gauges, with a straight 5/16"-24 threads fitting at the gauge and it worked ... it's only few $ for the fitting, try it out to see if it works on your gauge.
or you could use the original compression sleeve nuts with a copper line inside the car from gauge and from fire wall adapt the connection to a braided one out in the engine bay ?
