Changing 1990/4.9 oil pan gasket

Any ideas on how much time it would take, without access to a hoist? Any particular things to watch for, and do you have to be careful about overtightening the bolts? Any particular sequence in tightening the bolts?

I have a 1991 F150 4x4. I unbolted the motor mounts, placed a wooden block against the crank pulley and used a bottle jack to lift the front of the motor. I had to remove the windshield wiper motor to get enough clearance because the back of the intake touched the motor. You can then remove the bolts and slide the pan out the back. In replacing the gasket, I did not use any specific sequence but make sure you don't overtighten the bolts. One thing I wish I had done last time... Replace the oil pump whether you think it needs or not. I didn't and now I need to do it again.

i just did mine thinking it was the oil pan gasket but found out it is actualy the rear seal leaking into the front side of the tranny/engine plate by the back of the oil pan..just unbolt the motor mounts,jack it up..put blocks under the motor mounts..do it from there like was said..slide it out the back..i put a high volume oil pump in mine while i was in there..this engine has over 250k on it & still running strong..even ran for a few months with a cracked because of an overheating incident..put a new head on it & pulls like crazy.
