Question about RTO Ford----oil Pump-drive Gear 2n,8n,9n
Sounds like a worn engine.....the more clearance you have on the crank bearings....the more oil leaks out from them....lowering the pressure......but that doesn't mean you can't run it .
As long as you have some higher pressure when working the engine.....I wouldn't worry about it.
It is normal for the pressure to drop a little at slower engine speed when warmed up.
Why not put in a thicker oil.
Try a 20w40 or 20w50 or straight 40 if your weather is warm to increase warm/hot oil pressure.

Tips for a great answer:
was it literly a minute that it ran or was it like 10-15 minutes with you reving it up a bit? It could be many different things from as simple as it ran out of the gas that was in the carb and the tank valve is shut off to things like your magneto coil is shorted, no spark. Have you checked for spark and fuel? Does the engine have compression? More details will help solve your problem.
