  2. 7.3 oil pressure?

    94-98 7.3L General Powerstroke Discussion
    Good morning all! I am in the process of checking my oil pressure on my 95 7.3. Plugging my gauge into one of the ports by the valve covers, I'm getting about 6-650 psi at idle and when I floor it, it goes up to 2,500 psi for a few seconds and then drops to 1,500 psi. Is this normal? Thanks!
