    I have no real long term experience with the CAT engines, and very little has been posted on the forums about them.
    I am a Cummins fan from back in the NTC model days, and the only CAT engine I owned was a 3406B which worked great while I had it.

    Is the radiator CLEAN? Spray it with a degreaser solution and hose it off with garden hose pressure only. Do not use a high pressure gun as it will bend all the cooling tabs on the rad fins.
    I believe yours might have a thermatic fan control that may not be working as it should. That might contribute to the heat problem, but the low oil pressure is a concern that may only be a sending unit problem. You should have a professional look and test it when you have it serviced.
    Was it only acting up when you had the air conditioner on? That would tell me you have a restricted rad either internal or external?
    Hope you can solve the problem without major expense.
    Try to post on the forums any tips or solutions you find for that engine.
