1932 Auburn 8 Cylinder Oil Pressure was created by ttcinc
What is an acceptable Oil Pressure reading for the straight 8 Engine? Mine is around 10-12 lbs. Seems low. Can it be adjusted with the relief valve? I don't think the Engine is worn. Thank you

The short answer is YES.... But you really need to check clearances in several places to make sure nothing is worn causing huge pressure loss issues.

Do you have a oil filter on the engine? If you have a filter it should have a restrictor hole on the inlet side of the filter. If it does not have a restrictor hole much oil will dump through the filter and not go to the crankshaft and cost oil pressure.
