One thing I was warned about when I first joined he forum was dont ask what kind of oil to run because it really must have stirred the pot somewhere down the (before my time).... All I will say is they did not run multigrade oils back then hint hint. Enjoy my friend

Those old borden tube style gages develop a "habit" of showing that pressure.
They are mechanical and inside is a bent tube that straightens as the oil pressure forces oil into it. A arm connected to the tube and a set of gears moves the needle.
All of this stuff only moves a very small amount...after several decades fatigue takes it's toll and the gage becomes less and less accurate.
If you are worried, try another gage to verify.
15W-40 is pretty thick once the temp starts drop so engine/oil heaters are advised if you are going to use it to avoid oil starvation on start up.
#30 is prefered on those older engines for normal/heavy service. It also prolongs the life of the injector pump as it is lubricated by engine oil as well.
#10 is a good winter weight, if you want to use a multiweight 10W-30 is a much better choice than 15w-40 for light duty cold weather service.
