Victory! Well, as is often the case, the problem was quite simple. I could tell you the whole story about reading the wiring diagrams, tracking down where the wires went, looking for the oil pressure sender and finding it obscured from view by the air cleaner (which I removed), all of which is true. Problem is, it's really not that great a story.
The fact is, the wire wasn't connected to the oil pressure sender! Well that'll do it!
Reconnected it, climbed back into the cockpit, turned the key on, and there you go...buzzer. Started the engine and confirmed shut-off, etc. and everything worked fine.
I was a little suspicious that it was disconnected--wondering if it had been done on purpose because the buzzer wouldn't shut off or something, but it appears to be fine. It might still have been on purpose because the buzzer is so annoying, but there's a good reason for that, so I'd rather it work.
Thanks for listening, and providing some suggestions.
