That's not a huge pressure, but it would be better down between 2psi and 3psi. The first thing is to get the pressure checked so that you know for certain what you have, and ideally fit a regulator if it's too high. However you are not into the ridiculously high zone if the stated pressure is correct, so it may not be causing any issues.
Thanks Roger, when the car is back together I will do that

P's any youngsters will have to Google Minder/Dennis Waterman.

Often it's the needle valve of the carburetor closest to the fuel pump that let go first.
