    Oil pressure and water temperature guages

    I've just fitted Moon oil pressure and water temperature guages to my 1967 F250 pick-up, V8 352 engine.
    Does anyone know what pressure and temperature I should expect to see and what would be ideal? I appreciate the benefits of good oil pressure and not too high a water temperature I'm looking to understand more the benefits of having the information these guages will give me.
    The pressure guage reads 60 straight after starting then 40-60 going down to 20 when stopping after a long run then back to 60.
    The temperature gauge goes slowly up to about 170.
    Any feedback or other experiences with this would be most welcome, thanks a lot.

    Most water temps sit at about 70-80c with the thermostat opening about 80-90c. Your running at about 71c which is fine.

    Just done a quick search on google and found the anywhere from 12-25 idle is ok and anywhere from 70-100 at speed.
