A lot of stuff gets blamed on oil, when there is no evidence to support that conclusion. From owners description of the event, if he didn't run it dry of oil ( doesn't sound like it ) then it falls to lack of pressure in the system. Earlier wings had the occasional oil pump failures so I wouldn't rule that out in this case. It happens.
