dropping an oil pan from a 92 f150 4.9 2wd

So I plan on switching out the old to a new one. I've gotten about half of the bolts out already, and I've come to where the front axle/cross member? sort of blocks the rest of the pan. Now I have the right sockets to get in the tight space, just wondering if I would save my self the pain by loosening the mounts and pulling the engine up a bit to have some more room. I wanna just suck it up and get in there with a socket extension if possible, any help appreciated!

I removed your other thread as you are allowed only one per subject. Welcome to the site, and if you don't get any help, I can move this thread to another forum. Good luck.

bump... got the pan unbolted but its not enough clearance to slide out... what would be more convenient unbolting the trans? or loosening the engine mounts and jacking it up abit. If I do jack up the engine will it come up enough to slide it out without touching the trans? anybody?

When I was younger I helped my dad change an oil pump on his 93 F150 4X4. We undid the motor mounts and jacked up the engine. If I remember right it was enough to drop the pan and get our hands in the oil pan and undo the oil pump pick up, then we were able to pull the pan out. It was an inline six engine.

Hope this helps you, Clint

When I did mine I had to unbolt the transmission also in order to get enough clearance to get the pan out. With the transmission hooked up when you go jack the engine up you can only get so far before the tranny hits the the floor pan.

Ya it is. It's REALLY close without unbolting it but it's just not quite enough room to get the pan out.
