Hi gang;1963, 390V8I'm looking to clean up a few oil leaks around the Motor Oil pan.  I'll be removing the exhaust & exhaust manifolds and replacing with basic headers and new dual exhaust..  While doing that I want to drop the oil pan to fix those oil leaks.  Question is it possible to drop the pan without lifting the motor?  It looks like there is enough clearance, but I figured I'd ask anyone with experience?See More
