A 180 Thermostat and fan override will prevent that from ever happening. And a cooler engine runs with more power and more efficiency.

Steve...if the oil pressure is that low - it'* time to worry. You are about to blow your motor "again".

my 90 inches to that when it idles for a few minutes, but as soon as i tap the gas it goes back down so i dont worry about it too much, it has a new thermostat, water pump, and radiator, and my oil pressure got that low before right when it threw a rod on the highway
