What is the correct Radiator cap?

Putting together my small block Chevy in 1962 Studebaker Lark. I have a .40 over 327 with about 10:1 compression. I bought an aftermarket aluminum radiator if that matters. What is recommended pressure rating for the radiator cap for this engine? Thanks.

I would go with a 15lb cap. You shouldn't have any problems with that.
