87 F250 6.9 Oil Pressure

I just purchased a 1987 F250 6.9. My first diesel. The oil pressure gauge is bouncing between low end and middle of normal range. I have changed air filter/ and oil/oil filter(Motorcraft) using Rotella 15w-40. The intake and bolt to air cleaner were not covered in oil, but we plan to address CDR valve next. I have read other post which talk about poor readings for stock gauges. Any suggestions on a good set up and/ or repairs to insure I am getting good readings.:ford:

I just picked up an Auto Meter oil pressure guage from O'Rielly's website under clearance section $60 value for $14.97. It is mechanical so you have to run a oil line from guage to engine. I started a new thread on the 7.3 IDI (non powerstroke) side asking about this.
