I was just giving that as an alternative. If he did decide to go along the route of rebuilding. He could see how much it would be to get a fully rebuilt motor, compared to how much he is going to spend on parts & labor. I beleive a short block for your car is about 500 or so from autozone. I cant remeber exactly cuz its been awhile, but Im pretty sure its somewhere along those lines.

Mine was a '91. ALl I got was $500. Dont think your going to get much if you try selling your car with that problem still.

Default pull the pan

I'd drop the oil pan and see if there are any clues there. Low oil pressure could indicate a bad bearing. I had an experience with a 350 pontiac where an oil galley plug popped out and was dumping oil back into the pan causing low pressure. I'm not sure if this could happen in your motor though. If you don't want to drop the pan I'd at least drain the oil though a cheese cloth to catch any bits of debris.
