Default Directions for installing mechanical oil gauge?

I just bought the mechanical oil pressure gauge. (Sunpro $18) Is it neccesary to put in a "T" where the existing unit is in order to keep the old unit plugged in? Or can I just leave the old unit unplugged and run the new mechanical one in its place? Also what is the PSI supposed to be at when idling and at throttle? After I check the oil pressure I will tell you what I found. My truck is a 1996 1500 5.9 4x4 it has 196,000 miles on it.
