Does the motor sound different? Have you changed oil to see if it helps? If it sounds ok and you have change the oil and filter Id replace the Oil Sending unit (Oil Pressure switch). These are known to go bad.

Sounds like a cooling issue. When the engine overheats it will get so hot that the metals expand making the motor sieze. When the engine gets that hot it thins out the oil making it less dense. This will make the oil thin thus reducing pressure.
When the motor restarts after cooling you will find the oil pressure returning to 40psi
The slow cranking issue is due to the engine being hot/siezed. Theadgasket damange, valve/piston dehere are other reasons for this condition to exist, but with the engine reaching 260 degrees, I would contribute it to the overheating problem.
Quite often when a engine overheats to this extent, it can cause other serious problems; ie, head gasket damage, valve/pistion deformation crack raidator and so forth , good luck

the pickup tube in the bottom of the pan may be plugged up.
Is the inside of the engine slugged up?
is the oil clean?
if it is dirty inside the engine, you can add a quart of auto trans fluid to the engine oil. it has a lot of detergants and can sometimes break up some sludge related blockages.
It is best to change the oil in a couple of days after adding the ATF
Another thing i have done to try clearing any blockage to the pickup tube, is to remove the oil filter and with an air hose and nozzle, blow into the oil ports and listen for bubles in the oil pan.
Just some ideas.

Just fixed the valve covers and now the car wont stay crunk up


battery is probably low.when trying cranking for a period of time battery get weak thats why battery light on.charge battery.to see if it hold a charge.when battery fully charged it should be 12.5 volts.with engine running alternator out put should be 13.5 to 14.5.if not replace the alternator.or have it tested.when replacing valve covers make sure your pvc valve.in valve cover in place if not your car will stall out and idle rough.your oil leak on inside of your car from a leaking oil line to oil pressure gauge.thats why your oil light is on.
