60 and 100 psi, the later is needed if you have a high pressure oil pump,
but I don't think that this was a standard factory option.... maybe on race cars ?!
So standard pressure is 60 for sure.
230F or 110C is a question of the units you use in your country, in Europe UK has Fahrenheit,
the continent had Celsius. I would (intuitively) say that the US had Fahrenheit.
Just my thoughts...
1967 S3 DHC (now adjusted by Brian Buckland, totally calm idle)
1969 S4 FHC (final interior stuff)

The "74" denoted the length of the capillary tube.

I don't know what is correct, but my car (1968 S4) as I bought it had Farenheight and psi. A friend with more knowledge said it should be Celsius and psi. I exchanged my gauge for Celsius.
At about the time my car was built Britain was moving to the Celsius scale, so I assume the earlier cars were Farenheight and the later Celsius.
