    I would put a 2x4 or pipe across the doghouse behind the radiator and run some straps down through each motor mount to hold the engine in place while you try and sneak the oil pan off the oil pick up tube,,,,,and end up removing the crossmember to make things easier,,,,,,,then you can clean and paint the crossmember to make it look pretty,,,,,,,

    Haven't made up my mind totally yet if I need to do it or not. Haven't even heard the first sound from any of the lifters but when the engine is at operating temp with trans in gear and at idle the pressure gauge goes to zero and the idiot light comes on. Just barely touch the accelerator and the light goes out and the pressure comes back to about 12 to 20 pounds. The new aluminum radiator is keeping the operating temp at a pretty steady 195 degrees with a 180 degree thermostat.

    Let me know what you think !!!!!!
