You need to try a external gauge to check the pressure to see if your dash gauge is right

if the engine took 10 minutes to get oil pressure it would be dead by now i would replace the oil pressure sender unit first

No not the fuel pump. You most likely need to do a tune uo. New spark plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter. Deffinently change out the spark plugs. I would suggest using autocraft, autolite (fords brand} or some densos or ngk for better performance. Hope this solves your problem.

Oil pressure problem


You oil pressure sending unit has gone bad, it's common to go bad and some even leak oil. 
The oil pressure sensor is on the back of the block on the passenger side, you can get to it from the top and not from the bottom. There are (2) switches back there that screw in to the block and you can only see it from the top of the engine. The Oil Pressure Sending Unit is the one wire harness with a green and white strip on it. The other switch has more wires to it. 
When you pick up the new sensor, make sure you get the right one. make sure you get the Oil Pressure Sending Unit which sends variable oil pressure and has only one quick connect for the wire connector. The oil pressure switch is the one that only activates the oil light on older engine
Once you get the right part at Auto Zone for around $9.00, disconnect the wire clip with the green with white strip on it. and use a deep spark plug socket with a extension and u joint to get the sensor out. The sensor comes with teflon tape already and no oil should leak out from the block. It as simple as replacing a bolt and reconnecting the wire connector. 
Good luck and hope this helps, take no more then 10 min to do but about 5 hours for the engine to cool off LOL

Oil pressure sensing switch location


The oil switch is located on the passenger side of the truck in the back of the engine. Look for the transmission dipstick, then feel for it between the transmission dipstick and the engine block. It is hidden pretty well, but a socket wrench will fit to take it off. The new part uses a 1-1/16 socket, the old part for some reason was smaller, I think 13/16 inch. Hope that helps.
