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!
