85 2.3L dropping oil pressure

I have a 1985 Ford Ranger 2.3L and when it is idleing the oil pressure reads fine but as I accelarate the oil pressure drops and stays at 0. When I stop it comes back up a little.I stopped and checked the oil and it was fine and started it back up and the gauge was still reading low but no tapping or knocking can anybody maybe help me out with this?
