1970 mark iii 460 oil pan removal?

Hi guys well turns out the oil pump is seized I'm my 1970 Lincoln mark iii and we need to replace it. Looking at the pan it seems like we will have to pull the motor up a few inches to go the pan out. Is this true or are there any other tricks to getting that pan out with out the Hassel of pulling the motor?


Thanks, Jake

I guess you got the distributor out.

When I did my 72, all I had to do was remove the front motor mount bolts, jack up the engine about 2 inches and put some wooden blocks in to keep the motor elevated. Make sure you remove the fan shroud before you start, this is very important.

Good Luck
