Picked up a 1971 F100 last Saturday with a 240 inline six, three on a tree, long bed, manual brakes and manual steering, no a/c, radio delete. Pretty much my dream truck since I was kid. Anyways I need to change the gasket on the oil pan, do I just drop the pan and let it lay on the crossmember to change the gasket? Or can I slide it out to change the gasket without banging into the oil pickup?
I think if it was me I'd pull the motor and replace the pan gasket, front & rear main seals, and possibly the cam cover and lifter cover gasket too. I'd do the valve cover gasket too just for good measure.
