I added a gauge - don't trust the oil light and I like to know what my actual oil pressure is. When oil is hot gauge reads between 0-5 psi at idle. Kind of makes me a little nervous.Why do you want to change oil pressure? Is idiot light coming on at idle or has an engine oil pressure gauge been added?
I adjusted the pressure up a bit yesterday. Will try it out today. If too high, will lower a bit.I doubt adjusting pressure will help at idle. You can try but be sure pressure does not get too high at full throttle. What pressure do you have at full throttle? Spec is 25 - 35 psi. 0 - 5 at idle is definitely low. Low pressure at idle is usually caused by worn pump or bearings, oil diluted with fuel, or too thin of oil being used. Bearings bad in engine balancer can make pressure low also.
