Ah, digital. Most "steam gauges" don't register that sensitive at the low end.

It's failing...probably grounding somewhere between dash and exhaust. Like boost, you shouldn't actually have it measurable at idle.

5psi at no-strain cruise is fine. Noodling around town might be even less. Sitting in the driveway revving the motor can even be 0. OTOH at sea level I don' remember what the numbers were...

Of prime importance for tires is the sidewall and weight rating: this is maybe the heaviest thing to roll on 14 inch rims. My favorite 14in tires were Continental Vanco 8, aired up to 50 for the highw ...

Yes: either poor circulation with a loose belt, or from low coolant, would do this with all other parts being fine.
For filling, I think we talked about the "Libby bong" in the last hundre ...
