Before connecting the new gauge, I would have started the engine briefly so all the accumulated sludge in the oil line can be flushed out.If the gauge still reads erratically, I would try another gauge. Your pressure is low, especially on a cold startup. I run 15w-40 in my 9N. It is a somewhat "tired" engine. My startup oil pressure is 40psi. After about a hard workout of mowing for 1.5-2 hours, my pressure falls to 15-20 psi hot.
