Re: 72psi

I have 70 on idle, but only until it warms up and drops to 30 or so, rule of thumb is 10psi for every 1000 revs.
This was discussed HERE last week.

Re: 72psi

Sounds like you have -: 1)low oil b)poor sump design c)poor pick up deisgn d) an oil pump on the way out.

Only 1) is easy. All the rest are annoying.

Re: 72psi

Pickup pipe has tightened itself and came "up" away from the bottom of the sump. RH corner pressure loss is a classic sign.
