First, hook up an oil pressure gauge to check if the sender for the light is working properly. The light should come on when the pressure drops below 5PSI. If the light is on but the pressure is above 5PSI, replace the sending unit for the light. If the pressure is below 5PSI and you just replaced the oil pump your bearings are probably worn beyond limits and need to be replaced. This is a major project and you might consider just buying a remanufactured engine at this point.
