Re: Dropping Oil Pan
Since we don't know what engine this is I won't be too specific. On a 258/232 you need to pull the sarter first (disconect neg battery terminal), and then you can just drop the pan. The oil pump is mounted to the bottom of the engine, and is not attached to the pan, but,, there is a 'shelf' inside the oil pan that the pickup slides under. Just don't force the pan and it will come out sliding either to the front or rear (don't remember). BTW I will have an extra pan here (258) about the 9th or so of April. E-mail me if you're interested, I'll let it go real cheap.
