Oil Pressure?

I have a '71 914-6 conversion with a '71 911E 2.2 with mechanical fuel injection. When I bought the car, the oil pressure gauge was not functioning. I have since replaced the sender unit and I now have measurable pressure. When I first start the car(cold) the idle pressure is around 25lbs. and 60lbs. under load. Once the car gets hot(I live in Las Vegas with temps. around 110 degrees)the idle pressure is about 5lbs. and 50-60lbs. under load. Does this sound right and if not, what do you think might be wrong? Any suggestions on oil i.e., brand, weigth?
