The shop manual has you supporting the engine and dropping the engine cradle out from underneath to access the oil pan. So technically the engine is not pulled... but its a lotta work as the suspension needs to be pulled apart, and numerous other details, to remove the cradle. For RWD, you just skip the remove the half shafts steps.

There may be a couple threads on the subject, but I don't recall off hand anyone doing it on a RWD and reporting here.

May I ask why you want to drop the pan?

I was born with nuttin' and I still have most of it

Developed a light rod knock andI need to replace all the bearings. I did it on my race trucks so I hope to be able to do it for the CG.

Well after looking at the job I decided to go ahead and have a reman installed./ Found one for 3k with a one year warranty. Biggest thing is this is the first time in 50 years of twisting wrenches I couldn't do the job myself.

"Couldn't", or just decided it wasn't worth the time and banged up knuckles? I'd think that after 50 years of wrenching you're entitled to decide to pay someone to do the work while you go do something a bit more fun (even if you could still do the job if you really wanted to).

Did you try tightening the bolts? I've seen somewhere that some did that to stop a leak on their oil pan.
