Hi Joe,

So you're saying that the installation of the water pump lowered your oil pressure? It's possible that the new water pump isn't flowing as much water as the old one but that should show up on the gauge. You may have had a coincidental clogging of the oil filter or oil cooler. Have you changed the oil and filter?

Does your pressure go up to 50 lbs at 5000 rpm? If so you are within the Rosenbaum parameter of 10 lbs for every 1000 rpm and should be OK for normal driving.

I hope it's not a sign of worn bearings.
