Low oil pressure plus knocking sound = not good

Crap! My 73 has very low oil pressure at idol and a knocking sound that is coming from the lower part of the engine. The oil pressure is below 10 psi at idol and rises up to about 45 psi when I rev it up. The knocking sound gets louder too as I do that. I'm thinking rod bearings. I'm going to pull the pan and take a look later.

Steve,
45 PSI and knocking is really bad news.sad smiley Hope the damage isn't too comprehensive.
Best of luck,
Paul
