Oil Pan Gasket change?

To change the oil pan gasket, can I drop it down a few inches without taking off the cross member, and install another gasket? Has anyone tried ? Thanks, 1986 na

Yep. done it. It takes forever and you'll be struggling with torquing the bolts directly above the crossmember as the torque wrench wont fit.

Can it be done? yes. It will take substantially longer.

I replaced the Gasket by removing the cross member bar at the bottom. Its leaking again, so in my next vacation I will have to it over agian. The factory manual stated that a sealant (silastic RTV?? as far as I can remember) must be placed on the inside and outside at the corners of the gasket - so I placed an alternative sealant at the bottom of the gasket - not on the top - guess what - it leaks at the top. I also stripped one bolt hole in the block- DONT OVERTIGHTEN!!!
Enjoy the work and put sealant at the cormers, TOP and BOTTOM.

The torque sequence on the Oil pan is very specific.. it wa a center out cross pattern with 3 sessions of succesive torquing. Make sure to follow the book on this.
