One thing I noticed was the stock oil pressure gauge read abnormally high. Even after coming up to operating temperature the oil pressure read almost 80 psi at idle. The stock AMC-era senders are notorious for going out, so I ordered a new sending unit from Crown. With the new sending unit, the oil gauge in the dash reads a more realistic 40-45 psi at idle once warm.
