oil psi?

What should my oil presser be at? It was really high before but it went down a little its at maybe 2-3 o'clock position. I'm not sure off the top of my head.

Replace the sending unit or take it out see if the orifice is clogged up..sometimes they can be cleaned.

I checked the gauge and it seems to be working Ok to me. Never know for sure until I look into it completely. Thanks for the help!

17-35 at idle 40-75 at higher RPM. The only bad oil pressure is ZERO!
