Looks like attempt No 1 at replacing the oil pan resulted in a fail. I tried hoisting the front of the engine up as far as possible and managed to get all the pan bolts out and and the pan loose, but couldn't get the engine high enough to get the pan past the main cap at the front. The bell housing hits the top of the trans tunnel and won't let me raise it up enough. So, I think I'll try to take out the trans cross member and lower the back of the trans down to the ground and see if I can get a higher angle at the front of the oil pan and raise it higher. I thought about lifting the whole eng/trans up and forward with the hoist, but the front of the car is too long and the hoist won't reach without disassembling the whole front end. Not what I wanted, but it may have to happen.
