Not much else to do since the gauge is mechanical and you have oil to the gauge. That is unless you have extremely low pressure and the gauge is just not moving.

Does it move at all?

As stated, pretty much if the engine has oil pressure and the pipe is on the back of the gauge, if it doesn't move it has to be a bad gauge.

Did it just quit now?

Look at the back side of the gauge where the oil line connects maybe something is in there. Mechanical gauges don't fail very often and when they do oil leaks out everywhere. RICK
