Default Oil Pressure - OK

Have a fear of driving the old Henry not realizing that I may have no oil pressure. The typical answer would be to install an oil pressure gauge which would provide an easy check and also gives some indication of the health of the lube system and state of the bearings. As a minimum, I would prefer to just install an idiot light. As I recall, idiot light switches break ground at about 8 psi which may be a little high for Model A engines where oil pressure is usually less than 10 psi. Anyone know of a light kit set up for As or have any experience setting one up from off-the-shelf components ? Is my concern unfounded ?
