I bought a 1972 Supper beetle.
One of the many things that I have found with this car is a very high oil pressure. When cold it runs a bit over 80 psi.
There is an after-market oild filter installed and it has blown the gasket out of this.
I think I have that problem solved.
I had to tighten it well beyond hand tight.
The question is will this engine run with 80 psi with out dammage?
The previous owner seemed to think he had a hot rod.
He had 5 1/2 wide tires installed, a short shifter, a device to lock the front breaks, electric fuel pump, a small dry type air filter, headers and the oil pressure gauge.
I'm wondering if he installed a oil pump that would produce that pressure or found another way to increase it.
