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.
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.
