The 8N oil pickup tube, surrounded by a screen, is visible from below when the large oil drain plug is removed. It is centered above the drain hole. They are known to crack, or the solder holding them to the pump casting is known to break loose. If you drain the oil, and try to wiggle the tube, it should be held fast to the pump, and not move much, and be near the bottom for efficient oil pickup.
Of course, as someone else has suggested, you may have the wrong dipstick, and be low on oil.
Anyhow, your loss of oil pressure id not normal. I have an 8N, and have operated it some ridiculous angles without any loss of oil pressure.
