Was the oil pressure that low at idle or while running?

Both. It didn't seem to go up much when I increased rpm.
But it had NEVER been that low before. So I thought that it was odd.
Haven't started it up yet, just got my intake back.

Got the car out this past weekend after finding out that the carb gasket was the last remaining issue to the vac leak!!

She runs and is making boost. wow what a different car!!!!

Question about boost though.
I have a electronic pressure gauge on the manifold and a electronic fuel pressure gauge on the fuel regulator (which is referenced to the carb hat).

When I put the car under load the fuel press will go from 7psi to say 10psi, but boost is still showing 0 at the manifold.

But when I put it under enough load to get the fuel pressure to 14psi, boost is showing 4psi.

Is my boost gauge not reading right? or is this normal?
Because when boost is 0 and fuel is 10, there is without a doubt more power there!!
