High Pressure Oil Leak

I just did some work to my 05 6.0 and now I'm having the hardest time tracking down a high pressure oil leak. At least that what it seems to be. Ill start of by saying the truck had no problem building HPO before I tore into it. I tore into it to install ARP head studs, upgrade standpipes, dummy plugs, nipple cup o'rings, replace all injector o-rings and copper washers.

After cranking on the truck for roughly 3x 15 sec cranks it builds HPO and then runs great. No problems at all once started. I'm getting about 850PSI cold and 680PSI hot when the engine is running. After shutting it off and letting it sit for a couple mins it loses all pressure and your back at square one trying to build HPO.

About 1000 miles ago I replaced the oil cooler and the SCT fitting on the HPOP. And since the truck ran fine before I tore into it I cant see how it could be a HPOP or low side oil pressure issue.

What am I overlooking?

Is your FMP normal?
IPR and ICP values all within spec?

Whats FMP?

Found out that I have no base oil pressure now. Truck will not start at all. When cranking I get no oil at the filter housing. Pulled the low pressure regulator and it looks fine and moves easily. When cranking with the regulator out I don't get any oil coming out there either.

Pulled the dipstick out and founds lots of plastic and rubber particles in the oil. I cleaned off the dipstick and pulled it out again only to bring out more of this junk.

Drained the oil and then flushed the valve covers with parts cleaner solvent in hopes to flush all the contaminants to the pan. I then dropped the pan and found more of the plastic and rubber like contaminates. The pickup tube is fine and not plugged. Although the screen is way too coarse to trap the size contaminates I found in the oil.

I guess this only leaves the problem to the LPOP. Im looking at the "Black Diamond" cover and gears on eBay. Anyone have any thoughts on this pump?

Gears

Cover

Also I cant find the part number for the TTY harmonic balancer bolts. Where can I get these?
