Cool Oil pump replacement 74' S & S

I recently purchased a 1974 Stars and Stripes with a 351. The previous owner had the engine rebuilt. He had an high flow oil pump installed. When I got it on the water I noticed that the boat had no oil pressure and idle or low range rpm. I didn't show pressure until around 2300 rpm. I then pulled one of the valve covers to see if there was no oil pressure or just the sending unit wasn't reading it. There was no oil present at the rocker arms until 2300 rpm. So now I'm looking to find out if you all have tips for me as to which oil pump I should replace the existing one with.( Which from reading other posts here I am sure you have the answers I seek! )

Thanks, Chad
