I'm with Dave on all that oiling info.
I would not personally start the engine without a real good prime and fresh oil on the lifters and rocker arms.
If you really suspect the pump, I'd say go ahead and pull the engine back out.
But first if see if that new one feels better.
Do you have an oil pressure gauge installed?
