These engines if run low of oil can literally eat their big end bearing.
It's a peculiarity of design that one big end oil feeds runs only to one cylinder.
Sorry I cant remember which exactly but it's at one end or the other.
So#1 or #4.
As a result it can't maintain oil pressure.
Only way to know for sure is drop the sump and remove the big end caps.
Trust me if they/it is wiped it's obvious to the eye.
Might be wrong but I've see a few with these exact oil pressure symptoms/faults.
And you seem to have tried the obvious fixes.
