My 46 has a 1954 235 installed. Not sure what grade of oil is in it, it looks to be new. However when cold, ie first start of the day, I get around 30 psi on the original gauge. As she warms up, the oil pressure tends to drop. After about 10 minutes of running, at idle, the pressure gauge read just a hair above "0", and revving the engine a couple of hundred rpms sends the pressure to around 15-18 psi.
Any of you had this problem and would straight 30 wt help?
