Ok guys I got it back together and pumped the oil pressure up. I used a 500 rpm 3/8 drill and got 72 lbs oil pressure with 10-30 oil. Will this suffice? Thanks....

I'm sure you know that's no indication of PSI while running

I got 60 PSI while priming the system on my 406 with one of POPS blueprinted HV pumps using a 3/8 drill, but after installation I now get 80+ PSI on cold start, around 55 PSI after warm up. So, yes the 72 PSI is plenty.

Seems OK

I put a Melling HV pump in my recent build and got about 85psi with my drill and 10w30 breakin oil. While running and hot it had 98psi @ 6000rpm. When the oil was just warm it would go over 100psi. WAY TOO MUCH. 72psi with the drill seems OK to me.

Ok good deal

I think the drill I have is a little weak so it will probably be a touch higher when running. It had wayyyyyy to much pressure before. It was 140 cold above 2000. So should be good now. Thanks all!
