Ideal Oil pressure Sting Ray 1976 L82

Hello,

I just bought recently a 76 Sting Ray, L82, 350ci and I was wondering what should be the oil pressure on it.
I mean it's almost always high while driving ± 70, and goes about ±40 when idle.
Is that correct?
Thanks

76 Stingray Oil Pressure.
by: Terry

The oil pressure gauges in our old cars are really more indicators rather than calibrated instruments. I think nothing is wrong with your oil pressure system. As long as you see the pressure increase at higher RPMs and decrease at idle you know the oil pump is operating. If you want to see the exact oil pressure tap a gauge line in the 1/4 inch plug above the oil filter.
