My '67 427/390 only has a 60 lb max figure on the oil pressure gauge. As
I recall, a '65 327/300 I used to own had an 80 lb gauge (might have
been a 90#... it's been 20 years since I sold the car).
My reason for asking is that when accelerating it's pretty easy to peg
or nearly peg the needle at 60 lbs. - otherwise, at idle it sits right
about mid-point at 30 lbs.
Might anyone know offhand if the 60 lb gauge is the correct one for the
427/390s? Might there be any problem indicated by the high pressure
reading (according to the range given on the gauge) on acceleration?
