Hope you didn't run it long with gas in the oil. That will trash your bearings in a hurry!
Been there done that. Had a JD B that the fuel bowl leaked by, so did the float needle, and due to the design it drained the gas tank into the crankcase. Put a solid 2 gallons of fuel into the oil. Only ran if for a few minutes before we noticed something was wrong, but that's all it took. Now the oil pressure is in the single digits at best.
No stack of additives will fix loose bearings.
I was never a fan of additives like sea foam. Especially on old engines. 50 years of crud holds them together. Clean them out and the next thing you know everything leaks and you have new noises.
Sounds like you already used a gasoline additive for a cleaner!! And it didn't help much did it!
