Did you change the oil pump pickup tube also it might be cracked and not picking the oil up when it gets hot

Did you remove or change any of the oil gallery plugs?

i had a problem with a bent pushrod, engine ran ok, but was actually a cylinder down when spinning it up the lifter wouldn't lift up and allow oil to bypass, slow down it would drop back in place to divert oil correctly. not likely, but possible.

Better check your oil gallery plugs, maybe whoever rebuilt the engine put the wrong plugs in the front.
