Re: Dropping oil pan

you can drop it some without lifting, but I dont know if you will still have enough clearance. Wont be much room to work with at all.

I don't think you have to pull the engine but at least lift it some.

Not sure if it has the same k-member setup n all as the foxes,but on mine you had to lift the eng a little and unbolt the oil pickup two bolts and kind of a tight squeeze but definitely possible...

That's what I was doin, changing the gasket behind the timing cover.... Then I dropped a washer in pan.... I may run it like that.....
I worry about it getting in the rotating assembly more then the oil system.

It's possible. A friend of mine left an oil pump shaft in his oil pan figuring it would not move, but somehow it did and took out his engine.


That's why I fished mine out using a small, powerful magnet on a spring like stalk.

Possibly, but you'd have the distributor support casting and the oil pump to contend with.
