Can anybody tell me how to adjust the oil pressure on a F140 Continental engine in a 22 Massey Harris? I just got done completely overhauling the engine including a new oil pump. When I start it even on cold start up the oil pressure gauge doesn't register much oil pressure. I currently have an 80 lb gauge in the tractor so I know that makes some difference to but I still think it should register more oil pressure than it does. Any help would be appreciated.

Those continental never had more than 25-30 psi. You can replace the spring with one out of a small block dodge, if you want to. You'll get 30 plus, the oil pump won't be happy.

The oil pressure regulator is under the hex plug on the side of the block. Get a lower pressure gauge, 15 to 30 is all mine has.
