Hard to say without seeing it and since you've obviously done all the right
things. I''d be surprised if the big ends weren't knocking with only 10psi.
Have you tried a known 'good gauge' on it? As a desperate last ditch measure
on a bad engine I've run a lot of STP in the oil.
You can try soap as a DIY water wetter in the radiator to help drop the temp
a bit but short of big water pump pulley if it doesn't already have one and
blocking off the bypass and fitting a blanking sleeve I can't think of any
