Re: oil pan gasket
I removed the motor mount bolts, removed the transmission mount bolts, removed the distributor cap, removed the fan shroud, knocked the drag link loose from the idler arm and pitman arm, and rotated the engine so the timing mark was at five o'clock.
Put a board under the oil pan and jacked the motor up as far as it would go.
Cut pieces of 2x4 to slip in between the motor mounts and frame mounts and released the jack.
If you have access to a cherry picker and intake plate all would be the same except jacking up from under the oil pan. You still need to get the car off the ground some, and the engine needs to come up at an angle not straight up but more front biased. I put a one piece seal in and actually had to use the jack to push the pan up....the rear hoop was a mother and needed to stretch a little and dang those bolts are short.
You could always get the motor set up like you need it, then lift the car, swap the pan, lower the car, and button it back up.
