i've noticed that the oil pressure on my 302 drops from bout 60 psi when cold to 5 psi when at running temperature. should i be concerned with the 5 psi?

5 pounds is too low. Now, as it shows higher I can almost rule out a bad sending unit. You can try using a thicker oil. However, I think the pump itself, is on its way out.

At the time of this posting I was using 10-30 oil. Switched to a 50 weight racing oil. Pressure seems to be better,now.
