Okay, so about the car its a 94 302, tfs 1 cam windsor jr heads and an explorer manifold. Maybe 1,000 miles on the build. (probably less) Ive had an issue with the stock oil pressure gauge reading low or 0. So today I did an oil change and swapped in a mechanical. The Oil filter was ****ed. and now after driving around a little bit, the mechanical gauge, reads around 5psi (somtimes lower) at idle and then between 10-25psi. while driving. Now the motor has no knocks or noises (other than a bit of rocker chatter) and when i pull the oil cap everything appears to be well lubricated. I assume the oil filter could either be a freak incident or way too much oil pressure. but then why is the gauge reading so low??
