Rod and main bearings is most likely the knock, loss of oil pressure is most likely cam bearings, time for an engine overhaul.

well, if it knocks the only way to fix that is to replace what is knocking. AKA rebuild the motor. You have low oil pressure because there is enough clearence to knock. The pressure switch just tell you your oil pressure. Your oil pump isn't the issue.
