    Cool

    My Chevy 350 runs at 50 psi on tickover when cold dropping to 40 psi at 2000rpm when hot
    That’s according to my oil pressure gauge anyway

    Does the oil pressure warning light come on if you have one fitted? At start up and on tick over pressure oil will be a lot higher until the engine oil warms 2 -3 bar until the engine warms and the oil thins.

    Don't mean to state the obvious, but have you checked for no/low oil?
