Default gauge fault

I have a 1987 ford f-150 with 5.0l. my speedometer and battery gauges work and oil pressure sometimes but most of the time I have no oil pressure gauge. I have no working fuel or temp gauge and part-time oil pressure gauge I checked the fuse and the plug on the back of the gauge panel what else could it be?
