Default SHE RUNS!!!

I've finally managed to get my '50 F-1 flathead running again! Many of you responded to my earlier post requesting help in trying to get to fire....many thanks, it was all good information. Took a new fuel pump to get her to run and stay running. Now I seem to have an oil pressure problem. When I start the engine, the oil pressure climbs to 80 lbs!!! I have a spare NOS guage and it reads 80 lbs too. Any ideas? Bad sender? Any way to check "true" pressure? Also having trouble getting temp guage to read properly, but haven't worried about this as much as the oil pressure.

Thanks for all your previous help on getting her back running, and thanks in advance for your help on this one.
