Default Oil Pressure???

Does this picture look normal to everyone?? Reason i ask is the truck had a low RMP when i stoped for a drink and felt like it was stumbling at bit?? Is this where the oil pressure should be when driving at this speed??

same with me, I'm in the 1/3-ish area at that rpm. What weight oil you running?

Ok, it seemed odd the way it was idling?

Three things I notice, all subjective:

Your "D" light still lights up...

Oil pressure is lower than what either my 80 or LX would reflect at that RPM but I run a heavier weight oil (10w40)

EDIT: Checked on my way in this morning...At idle the pressure in the LX is on the first line (just below where yours is at). At 2K RPM my pressure is at the second line

Your temp guage reads higher than either my 80 or LX read. Is that the stock gauge or have you modified it? If it is stock, and it isn't the angle of the picture making it look higher (and assuming it is cold up there right now), you might want to consider flushing the cooland and checking for muck in the radiator. Ben pulled the radiator in the 80 and had it cleaned...Shop said it flow tested at around 25% (or less IIRC)
