could the valve cover gasket cause a loss of oil pressure you can see there is a leak from the driverside valve cover gasket? oil pressure is fine up untill about 1600rpm then it starts to drop

shouldn't. oil pressure should be getting measured before the oil actually hits the valve covers.

if it's leaking, fix the leak.

Sounds like your oil pump may be getting a little play inside. If its not the sensor or gauge and sometimes oil can cause a bad contact on the sending unit.
