Intake balance shaft seized (no other damage).
Replaced both balance shafts with new ones (and timing chain service).

Now has low oil pressure (5 psi at idle after warmup, 25 psi max).

Possible that balance shafts are UNDERSIZED (dropping oil pressure)? Any reports of low oil pressure with new balance shafts?

Or is it more likely that the bearing seats of the seized shaft are 'worn' from seizing? If that is the case, is repair possible or new engine block needed?
