Default Re: Oil Pressure - OK

An oil pressure gauge on a Model "A" only indicates the oil pump's output pressure, and not the pressure of the oil feeds to the bearings in the motor. There's one exception, and that is the center camshaft bearing which is pressurized directly by the oil pump. So an oil pressure gauge on a stock Model "A" engine is mainly a decoration.
