Just a quick question. I have a chance to replace my original 216/3speed/etc. with a 56 Hydraulic lifter 235/ t5 and open drive. My issue is with the 235, it runs good but the oil pressure at 1800rpms/60 mph is 25lbs. specs say 35 at speed. what to worry about?

I have a 56' 235 in my 49' 3600 and it runs at 25lbs also.

The Idle oil pressure tells more about bearing clearances.
If you get about 15 PSI at idle you are good.

THX for the replies. She runs at about 15 lbs at idle when warm and 25 lbs at 2000 rpms. It's a little hard to tell as the guage messures 0 to 100Lbs. THX again.
