DZ oil pressure
« on: May 22, 2008, 09:30:07 PM »
I just installed an oil pressure gauge in my 69Z since it was a non gauge car. What is the typical oil pressure for a stock DZ at idle and at normal cruising speed?

30-40 lbs at idle and 60-70 driving down the road.

Thanks Jerry.......enjoyed the time we spent while you documented the car yesterday. Looks like I have problems. Only 10psi at idle and 40psi at cruising. Looks like I'll have to pull the pan and check it out.
