I am not 100% sure but I think you are tapped into the spot where it goes. Maybe the light is on because there is no sender?

On the 64 that is where the sending unit (Dummy Light) would have been installed on top of the oil gauge. The pressure gauge will work there as well. So you have a light on and cant find where switch is, im sure its somewhere on the side of the block on the lower half of the engine. It has to be attached to engine in order to sense pressure it gas one wire attached to it...
