Default Oil Pressure

I have a 1968 Mustang Coupe, with a 1978 351w. I just finshed the engine swap not to long ago, and it is burning oil at or above 2000rpm. I also have verry low oil pressure. Any help would be great.

Default Oil Pressure

i'm tempted to think that your piston rings are worn out. if the engine has alot of miles on it, it's a good bet. as for oil pressure, make sure you're using the right grade of oil and that you're oil pump isn't worn out.
