I would like to change my oil pan gasket. It's a 1970 351 W w/FMX. Can I just drop the lower crossbar and leave the steering components alone? It looks like it should be that easy. But I get the feeling its not.
I have a 70 cat,with a 351 cleavland. 7 at deep front sump pan. I took cross member,starter and also lowered my steering rack. And I still have a hard time removing my oil pan. By the way I also have a t5 tranny. Do I have to remove timing cover also?
I did this on my 70 with a 351c. I unbolted the center crossmember, unbolted the motor mounts, and raised the engine still in the car. I got the oil pan off easy and replaced the oil pump and rebolted the oil pan back up.
