How many miles on the engine? Oil pumps almost never wear out. Bearings do and there are a whole lot of bearings in these engines. And past experience on other engines has taught me that low oil pressure at idle indicates a worn engine.

Sorry. I think you need a replacement. Or just live with the low oil pressure for a while--it could last for years.
