recently got my mk1 golf gti on the road. used it for a few weeks until 2 months ago. since then just used it a handful of times for very short journeys. i recently changed oil filter housing and oil pressure switch. now the oil pressure light keeps coming on after a few seconds driving and stays on. i also found a bit of white gunk on oil filler cap. no signs of moisture on dipstick and no signs of oil in header tank. any ideas?

Change out the switch for genuine and if it still does it I have a pressure tester.
Often the pump gums up as free a poo period of being stood still.
Two solutions, new pump or try washing it out.
Check out the wiring as often they're toss.
