I changed my front springs before and also when i did i had actually my front finish on the ground and also lifted human body up nice high come get every one of the stress and anxiety out the the springs. Pretty sure there was a the majority of clearance in between oil pan and axle. Could help. 

Well thank you very much for the advice. I"m going to reseal mine vac pump and shot snugging increase the pan bolts first because the PO replaced the pan gasket, yet I"ll definitely keep every this in mental if I should do it. Is there anything special to perform with the pickup tube gasket?


I assumed the overcome member to be the issue, no the axle?

yes you"re right about cross member, i spaced that one out. I guess what to be mentioned prior to raise the engine increase if you"re walk to effort it. 

if I ever do it i might try the above, advanced the engine. Yet if I have actually problems, I"m pretty great with a welder for this reason I can cut it out and make base to bolt it back it. And also it will certainly defiantly be stronger then before. I always over do it. 

I simply did mine a couple weeks back and undid both engine mounts then elevated the motor nearly to the firewall. I didn"t need to remove the pickup tube, it was actually pretty easy. 

One day later on I know I"ll be changing a pan gasket too. It"s quite to recognize either way will work and also get the pan out.

Not sure if the pickup tube is different from 12 come 24 v I have only excellent it on 24 v from my brief term memory lol but I just feel much safer by no going up so high just in case a slip happens, ns don"t want the engine landing top top my arm or hand and smashing it in between the engine and cross member, that"s the major reason I carry out it that method by keeping the mounts in place and just sliding it up in the slot after loosening the bolts .

Thanks guys for her time and also your tips!!!! that looks fairly easy come do. Did friend just loosened the motor mount bolts and also jack the engine or you must remove other parts?? loosing trans. Mount... Fan,fan shroud??? or other things

Just loosen the mountain bolt on every side the the engine is every you have to do. Just watch the pan to shroud clearance, there have to be plenty of room however never harms to watch it. Every little thing has enough flex and also clearance for the wee little bit one is lifting the engine.
