"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).

ColdCase 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?
