Re: oil pan for 69 Camaro
Yes you can do this. As was stated you have to put the crank into the correct position (my manual states 6 o'clock) to get the pan off. Unbolt the motor mounts where they attach to the frame stands and jack the engine up untill you can place small 2x4 blocks (in the 4" direction) between the motor mount and the frame (? it's been awhile but I've done it so I know it can be done).
All this is outlined (including where to place the blocks) in the 1967 Chassis Service Manual, Section 6 Engine, page 17, oil pan removal (I have a 67). I'm sure it's the same for 69.
67 Camaro: 454/TH400/4.10 12 bolt. Lots of options: PS/PDB/PW, tilt, tach, gauges and more. K-K + 797-Z...
