Oil pressure gauge....

I have an 83 Dodge pickup with the classic slant 6 engine. I checked my oil this morning when getting gas and found out I was down a couple quarts, so I put them in. My question is why there wasn't any difference in oil pressure after putting in oil? Not a big concern, just curiosity.

although the oil was fairly low you was not running the pump dry as you still had a few quarts in the system the only way you would of noticed an oil pressure drop or fluctation would be if the oil pump was starving for oil. and if its that low it doesnt take very long to do major damage.
