I'm pretty sure I've replaced the "O" ring in the past so I've isolated the issue to a weak pump.

But if you want a used one I have my old one in a box somewhere, I spun a rod and during rebuild I just bought a new one while I was in there. 50$ shipped if you want it

You should also clean out the pressure relief valve in the pump and add a washer in there, so it by-passes oil at a higher pressure (doesn't allow oil to by-pass so soon). It needs more pressure to push the by-pass piston out enough to allow the oil to go out the relief hole. Then the system will keep a slightly higher pressure than before. I usually gain about 20 PSI oil pressure by doing this when using an old pump on an old block.
Anyway, it is very easy to do and self explanatory once you remove the large nut that holds the spring and piston in there.

I will definitely do that, thanks.
