Re: 146 1.8 Twinspark low oil pressure at idle
The pickup gasket only comes in the full engine set, ifthe engines been run low on oil though then there may be wear to other components such as big ends, cams, piston rings, the oil pump itself (the cogs in it have wear limits), etc, also check the inlet manifold gasket isn't leaking oil between the variator solenoid ports and the #1 or 2 ducts, but you can use a dab of silicone sealant in place of the pickup gasket, be sparingas you don't want it to break off and cause a blockage.
