I have done that numerous times with GM small/big blocks, V6's and the Willys 134's for various repairs and have never had a problem. I would assume the AMC pans are also stout enough for this but have not done that with any of them.

Better to lift via the side-flange of the pan, than from the pan's bottom.
A 2x8 block of wood works well for this.
