been running my 1949 C hard for 40 years and it has never shown more than 4 or 5 psi on the gauge. pull the valve cover start engine and let idle while standing beside tractor. if oil is flying everywhere it is good to go. Old is right. again.

Your wrong, I rebuilt dozens of tractors that have 50-70 psi. It doesnt blow the seals out of anything. I use a test gauge also. I even get it calibrated every year so I know I am accurate instead of relying on an 50+ year old one. Just because you have oil flying everywhere doesnt mean you have enough hydraulic pressure between your bearings.

no problem Rich. most folks make way to big a deal about low oil pressure readings. I always hear fellers hollering about having 60 or 70PSI pressure. BS. 70 pounds would blow every seal in an old engine in short order. I am happy with my 4 or 5 pounds. my old tractor just keeps going and going. haven't even had new rings in since the late 60s.I decided long ago that 4 or5 psi was plenty.may not be enough for a green tractor but red ones just keep going. We are working the snot out of 5 c's and Superc's right now trying to keep all this baccer plowed. we have had waay to much rain here and in danger of loosing a big chunk of our crop. I guess a third of it scalded down today.tobacco is a dry season crop. I will take a dry year anytime over a wet one. I can pump water on if needed but can't take it off.

Know what you mean. I use my BA which is half B and half A to mow hay with and the oil pressure runs when hot just above the red on the IH gauge. I also have been using a IH 340 to rake hay this year and it runs around 10psi. I also have a few old A/C tractors and those also run with low oil pressure in the 5-10 psi range all day long for decades. Now my Oliver Super 88 it runs a good bit higher
