As for the oil pressure. It may help keep you from being to low, but will also not solve any problems if there are any or not. We will see though.
alright ill let you know how everything goes tomorrow

Re: engine temperature?

Under 10 PSI is a sign of bad bearings, to much clearance and you lose oil pressure at low RPM's.Being low on coolant and oil sure is a bad sign.
It doesn't matter how long either of you had it after being rebuilt, maybe it was not rebuilt properly or at all?
Antifreeze helps the water cool better and keeps your system from corroding always run a 50/50 mix.
Get the fans fixed if it isn't to late already. Overheating your engine can take the temper out of your rings and it will start burning oil soon after.

i fixed the fans now the temp stayed at a steady 195ish all day the oil pressure came up a little bit its at about 19psi at 2000rpms is that still too low

What does it do at idle?
Rule of thumb is 10 psi for each 1000 RPM's.

You want to have "some" antifreeze in there cause it acts to lubricate your water pump.

Old wives tale. There are no lubricants per se, in antifreeze.
Modern water pumps and seals don't need lubrication.
The antifreeze does help cut down on cavitation though and that can eat up the stamped steel impellers fairly quickly.
