now when i had the oil pressure switch in the car before i hooked up the gauge the gauge in the car was half way in the red and sometimes it 0 with the car in drive and my foot on the brake.
bill would you be able to give your input on the above psi'* so i have an idea where to go from here. would you recommend putting in a new oil pressure switch at $60.00 with the numbers i have giving you.

thanks
