Just bought an oil pressure gauge and would like to know the proper stock oil pressure.

Thanks in advance. :rocks:

Start it up. Tell us what the pressures are when the engine is cold and when it is warmed up.

I believe warm at idle it has to be above 11. I just rebuilt mine so running down the road its almost 80psi, but I believe 50-60 is normal. I would worry more about getting the head on and engine time correctly first. Your getting ahead of yourself.

Actually, I'm not. ^ The head is currently at the machine shop so I figured I'd hook up the gauge during the downtime I have. And was on here last night and was curious what correct pressure was. :)

Not my first rodeo, dog biscuit. ;)
