Hey Everyone,

When I start my car, the oil pressure is a little above the middle. When I start driving it drops to right below the middle. The when I stop and idle it drops all the way to just above the low marker. Then when I start driving again, it moves back below the middle.

It's a '66 289 with stock gauges. I'm wondering if it's a sender problem or the gauge? Or is this normal?

Thanks in advance.

Erik

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you got it made.
