YES! I've run in to something similar with my '87. At the back of the motor - on top, behind the Intake manifold is the Oil Pressure Sender/Switch. There is another switch attached to the same "tree" that shuts the spark off in case of Low oil pressure. It's only 2 wires so you can short it with a paper clip and try it. Tell me if it works!
