Need Diagnosis Help! Oil Pressure Warning Light and inconsistent idle

Hi everyone. I have an '85 CJ5 with the 258. Howell fuel injection conversion. It has been sitting for a few months (I don't use it over the winter). It has an oil pressure gauge and a low oil light. So, the low oil light is coming on and off, and the idle is inconsistent. I did replace the oil light switch, but that didn't help. The pressure gauge is showing 40lbs of pressure. Any thoughts? Not sure if the idle and the light might be related, but before now its always idled perfectly smoothly.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sorry, I meant an '83 CJ5. Typed too fast!
