oil pan gasket

I have a '94 EB Bronco 4x4, and need to change the oil pan gasket (leaking). I know it's better to pull the engine to remove the pan and pump, but can I replace the gasket without completely pulling the pan? thanks..

Re: oil pan gasket

hmmmm, that is a good question. it wouldnt be too bad except in the rear by the tranny, the exhaust is right there and I just dont know if you could snake the gasket in there and get it aligned right. i had a little trouble replacing mine even with the exhaust cut out and engine jacked up off its mounts as high as it would go with the upper intake removed. I would say it is possible but you wont be in a very good mood when you're done [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: oil pan gasket

What engine do you have? I have the 300 inline six and changed mine without pulling the engine.

Re: oil pan gasket

Yeah you can do it , go to yoga courses a few times beforehand to loosen up the joints [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img], since its a 1 piece rubber gasket and your gonna have to jack it up as high as possible to get the new one fished around the oil pump pick-up , Fel-pro includes these 4 fancy little screw in gasket guides that hold the pan and gasket in place while your trying to position your body (already twisted up like a corkscrew [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]) in the right angle to get a couple pan bolts started.

Good fun--- especially if you have arthritis like me . . .

Re: oil pan gasket

Yes it can be done. That's how I did mine. It will take time and tons of patience. Fishing it around the oil pump pickup is the challenge. Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

The 4.9L/300ci pan will come out [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] - the V-8 pans won't. [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

Re: oil pan gasket

If your blood pressure starts getting to you, you can go the route that I did and remove the upper intake and jack the engine way on up there. I also cut the exhaust behind the cats and removed that section up to the manifolds, which allowed complete removal of the pan, which could make your life easier but obviously requires some extra work. Knowing about the super secret Torx bolt on the intake and using something other than a hacksaw on the exhaust would make it not so bad though [img]images/graemlins/chairfall.gif[/img]

Re: oil pan gasket

Well, BoulderBronco7 and BroncoMania...you were right on with the "twisted up like a pretzel" thingy. Getting too old, sore, and grumpy for this kind of mess! Maneuvering the FelPro gasket around the pickup on the pump just about got to me. I was ready to put it all back together and take it to the shop. However, all is better now. Thanks to all for their guidance.
