After you remove the clutch and do the bearing inspection, I would recommend that you take both oil pumps apart and inspect the inner workings... The magnet, screen/magnet on the drain plugs are designed to catch particles before they migrate into the pumps but when a lot of debris is present some will make it past... When metal particles get it into the pump it may score up the pump rotor enough to reduce the oil pressure and cause further damage down stream {piston, conrod, gearbox} if left too long...
