yes! with countless hours on your back. You will have to drop the oil pan to install the seal, a real PIA!

You will need to support the engine with a hoist or my redneck way of running 2 2x4s across fenders, chain between hoist points and a load tensioner to raise engine.

With the engine supported you will have to drop the crossmember to get the oil pan out. Taking apart is easy, lining up the pan to block w/ new gasket is a super PIA. if you try to just lower the pan to sneak in the seal you will go thru alot of oil and it will be on the streets.

A whole lot of work if a small leak (just wetness) do not worry about it, if a good leak (drip) do the entire front seals as well as the oil pan gasket.
