66 ranchero oil pan removal.

hi, i got a quick question about the oil pan removal on a 66 ranchero.
i'm under the impression that there won't be enough clearance between the underside of the pan (302 engine) and the reinforcement steel bar that runs from one side of the car to the other. what's more, even if there would be enough clearance i would still need to remove the front sway bar in order to pull the pan out towards the front...

any suggestions or has anyone done this before?

any help would be greatly appreciated

I have done this on my 67 Fairlane with a 289, had to raise the engine as far as it woould go, unbolted the pan and lowered it down, reached in and unbolted the oil pump and got it out. As far as the sway bar I don't remenber if it was in the way, it's been along time sense I did this, but I don't think there was a problem. Hope this helps. Allen

been there, done that

yeah, tried that too, but when i jack up the engine the car comes with, and i did unbolt the motor and transmission mounts, so i think there's not enough room between the tranny and the firewall. and the sway bar is 5 inches away from the oil pan front, just under the crank pulley, so it's definetely in the way. just seems strange, that you'd have to take the engine out to get to the oil pan....


i'll keep looking, though...


thx allen.
