Prep and Start Engine

Well, I started it up, and I'm very pleased with the oil pressure now. I get 60+ PSI when it first starts up (1500 RPM), and about 30 PSI after it warms up (at idle). Even waiting until the oil temp reaches 225, I still see 17-18 PSI at idle. Good enough for a baseline.

Total Time: 5.5 hrs.
