The oil sensor on the front of the block, the cable running to this is often perished. Its usually a crimped connection on the sensor. Try giving the cable a wiggle you can usually feel its broken/snapped inside the insulation.
Fuel gauge: Thanks for the info mate, I'll have to pull the unit out and examine what the problem is.

Oil gauge: I wigled the switch cable and the oil gauge backing light flickered, but still no oil light. So I've ordered a new switch and I'll have a look at the cable too.

Still can't get the mileometer working though!
