Are you sure it's a pressure problem and not a gauge? And did you check the little screen in the oil pressure gauge pipe? They are know to plug up and give you incorrect readings. Of course you could put on a manual gauge just to be sure.

I have seen the motors with a lot of problems with the crank shaft and bearings worn out. You should have plastic gauge the bearings with had pan off that would have giving you an ideal of the motor condition
