Brian,
It may be worth finding what type of engine he has. A type 68 is US spec of around that era (I'm anexpert on this now - thanks to you guys - I have a 68 engine). If it is a 68, the bottom end of system pressure starts at 6.7 bar - in which case - should probably be left where it is. (6.7 -7.4 spec) The cold pressure for this spec at between 30-35 deg C (I'm guessing this is about 95 F) is 3.0 bar. In which case the pressures would be spot on - for a starting point.
If it is not a 68 - they do drop a bit - about 10 psi for both.
