It seems like I had the same issue on my 1992 SM 80hp prima engine.
I got all the parts from :
It should cost you a lot less and the shipping to France was really fast.
From what I found out on the internet, it seems that you are not supposed to re-assemble the piece holding the "drive coupling" without the "special alignement tool" from Perkins. If you did dissassemble it (like I did), and not re-aligne it perfectly using the special tool it could be the cause of your problem.
Since I did not have the special Perkins tool, I tried to build one myself using a roll of tape and a wrench. So far so good...

That is great that the oil pressure is still good. Could the shavings from the wearing pump drive components plug the ability of the lubricating oil to flow back to the oil pan? The only other possibility causing accelerated wear that I can think of is that somehow the pump drive components are not in correct alignment. Hopefully you can get a more informed answer for your question.
Best of luck,
