Was the sender replaced during the rebuild? And have you verified this low pressure with another guage? Maybe a manual guage? I have had many GM oil pressure senders fail over the years. Scares the crap out of you. Usually they read fine at startup and then would slowly drop as the engine warmed up. Giving a false low reading, sometimes zero pressure! Just something to check before the hassle of dropping the diff and pan. Not saying it couldn't be a pump, you never know.
