'95 PSD #'s

Hey guys, I just purchased a 1995 F350 dually and love it, but was talking
with a friend and debating the numbers it should be running. I think it's all good, water temp is about 180 under no load, maybe up to 210 when its hot and loaded, is this ok? I think so, he thinks it should run cooler, I was always told, more heat, more power?
The eng oil press is only about 20-25psi at cold start up and when hot it drops to about 10. The stock oil press sender has blown out several times according to the previous owner and it has an autometer gauge cluster on the pillar that I'm relying on.
What do you all think?

im not worried about the coolant temp too much, but that oil pressure seems awfull low, especially when hot......how does it start and run.......and how many miles are on it???

MSCHN99--the engine has about 90K on it and the truck just over 150K.
I bought it from the second owner who got it at 40K and said they (Ford) replaced the engine under warranty (not sure why) and he also stated he had trouble with the stock oil press sender going bad and the sender for the autometer gauge has had to be replaced before for doing the same thing. Maybe this isn't something to worry about?
The stock gauge will read nothing sometimes, sometimes normal and sometimes it moves all around!
It starts and runs like a champ! No smoking, excessive knocking, no oil comsumption. I drove it 2300 miles to pick up a trailer and it was doing this most of the way. I got 18mpg unloaded and about 12mpg pulling a 34 ft gooseneck encl trailer.
As for the cooling, the fan clutch appears to be getting weak upon further inspection, what do you think about elec fans for it? Do you know who makes a good set?
Thanks for your advice
Brad

i would be really curiousl to track down this oil pressure gauge concern. i have no doubt that the oil pressures are fine if it is never a hard start and if it never has lack of power problems, so something else must be taking out these oil sending units.....

as far as the cooling, electric fans are great, but dont skimp on a cheap set if you do them. if you dont want to spend the money on a good electric with a temp switch, then just replace the fan clutch. sorry, i dont own a diesel, so ive never bought a fan for one so i dont know a good place to start looking.........Marc
