1998 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles

when at idle my oil pressure gauge drops to nothing as soon as I raise the rpm's the pressure goes to normal range. I just had the oil pump, bearings and main replaced and it continues doing this. Any ideas on how to cure this problem?

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge if normal replace the oil pressure switch abnormal could mean oil pump and engine bearings/sludges
