cant get oil pan out

Oil pan rusted out. Took carriage bolts loose and jacked up the motor about 2 inches. took the pickup off. I sill don't have enough room to get the pan out. Anyone else do this? I have an f-350 4x4 with the 6 speed manual. Thanks!

Ive done 100s of them with no issues.
Remove the engine mount nuts completley and jack the engine as high as it can go believe me they go up pretty high before you hear anything snap or pop... Also remove the trans mount nuts or leave them hanging on by a couple threads, that will allow the transmission to move upwards to give you more room.

What i do, i have a 2x12 at work put the truck up on the lift and set the 2x12 on the front crank pulley and lower the truck onto the board. Some trucks i have to remove the steering stabilizer in order for the board to fit into the front crank.

I have removed my share of oil pans on 6.0L trucks without any difficulty by doing in the method you've described above. However, I have never needed to remove one on a manual transmission equipped unit like yours, which I believe is the cause of your difficulty. That said, you may end up having to remove the transmission at least partially to gain the clearance needed for it to slide rearward.
