Oil pan replacement

So a bolt went through my oil pan on my 67 hardtop and I got to replace it my issue is that almost everywhere I've look says you need to remove the idler arm mounting bracket off the passenger side frame rail and the crossmember but according to the chilton manual it's says I just need to remove the sway bar to get the oil pan off which is it? I'm hoping chilton is right if not ill post pictures as to why the bracket is such a pita

Idler arm bracket doesn't sound right. I would think either the crossmember or the sway bar would leave enough room to get the pan out. I'll check my son's 67 tonight. Is it an I6 or a V8 (which one)?

That's a link to the part I'm often seeing is removed so I misspoke its not the idler arm but the steering linkage however the castle it on the steering linkage that's connecting it to that bracket is what's giving me all the trouble it's right up against the lower mounting bolt and I can't get either to move

Probably need an impact wrench after soaking with penetrating oil. Or a pretty good cheater bar. Also a picle fork to separate after getting the nut off.
