    that reminds me of my C. when I bought her I took my test gauge with me.. I rummaged around and found the pic. I had to hand crank her the first couple times.. and this was at idle with old oil.

    It could be a number of things. Most likely just an engine with a lot of hrs. on it. I wouldn't worry about numbers. 20 lbs 35 lbs. Like you have seen some of the guages don't even bother with numbers.
    I have a number of old farmalls and most of them have more oil pressure when first started than when hot . At Idle on a hot high mileage engine yes the pressure is close to zero. It don't take much to do the trick. One thing you can do is look under the valve cover on a hot engine and see if you see the rocker arms getting oil. If they are then it is ok. If dry then you are hurting then engine.
    most of my tractors have this problem. If I was farming hard and plowing hard I would rebuild sooner.

    yep.. as low as 6 psi per 1000 rpm is enough.
