5 psi, too low?
I have an 89 bronco with a 4.9, was having problems with the gauge going down to nothing. I hooked up a mechanical gauge and warmed up and at idle it reads about ~5psi. I am running 10w-30, and suggestions on boosting it up other the running stupidly high weight oil?

general rule, 10psi for every 1k. So yes your bearings are most likely washed out. Throw in thicker oil to see if that helps... could also be a oil pump issue.
