If that is at an idle and the engine is warmed up, I would say that is very good oil pressure.
Yep, took it apart too long ago, and now can’t remember everything.....

I concur. Make sure you are using the right oil pressure sender and the 0-50 psig oil pressure gauge not the 0-80 unit used on Ford V-8s
