Going fast is only half the fun ... what you make go
fast is the other half.

Well, I picked up 3 gals of Rotella 15W-40. So that's what's in the motor.

OBAMA: Some people deserve this.
The rest of us are being dragged along kicking and screaming.
Also, things may change in a few months...beware that during hot peak summer days you just might find that twenty-hour-old 10w-40 petroleum based motor oil just isn't cutting it anymore and your oil pressure is lower than you may like to see. Adjust accordingly...be it stepping back up to 20w-50 or maybe synthetic 10w-40 (after a thorough break-in), etc.
In short, for a mild rebuilder 460 with carb, intake, small cam, etc, I wouldn't want to see anything over the 80 psi that you have.
I posted this reply on the other forum as well....

Sorry about the thread jack. When I was trying to start my engine, the oil pressure gauge shoots straight up to maximum oil pressure on the gauge. What is the reason for this? And should I be worried about it? Don't know how it is going to act when the motor gets completely back together after being completely torn down, but that is what it was doing when we were trying to start it a couple of months ago. Can't remember what the max on my gauge is. Thanks. HJ
