My 1969 corvette 427/390 is around 35-40 when warmed up. It’s has 3:08 gears. Rob

If it is an electric gauge, make sure the lead is not grounding out somewhere ... I think if the lead is grounded ... the gauge will indicate max pressure. If I am wrong -- someone chime in ... TAZ

The gauge is a mechanical unit.

Sent you a PM regarding the rebuilding / clean-up of the pivot points.

Finally got around to removing the oil pressure gauge; can anyone here help guide me through the steps needed to get it working properly again? Nothing about the gauge seems broken, I can move the needle very easily and it doesn't seem to stick at all.

Of course that makes me think it's something more serious...............ugh.
