Engine Mechanical problem
1972 Holden Van V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual
Recently installed a high volume oil pump to my 253 V8 and fitted a electric oil pressure gauge to 100 psi. Problem: is it normal for oil pressure to exceed the 100 psi until engine warms. It settles down to 50 - 60 psi after a few minutes driving. Also, will the gauge/sender handle the over 100 psi limit. I have already destroyed a mechanical oil pressure gauge when the needle went off the dial and stayed there. Thanking you.
