Never done it myself, but from what I have read for it to seal properly there can be no oil contact with the rtv that seals the pan to the block for like 24 hrs. To be done correctly I believe the block has to be flipped upside down.

Loosen the motor mounts, jack the engine up a little, swear at it a little, and take it out. It can be done, just need to have a little patience and be flexable. Once out, make sure to clean all old gasket material from block and clean surface with brake cleaner.

Pull it all the way out once and do it right once.

I just pulled my engine for a cracked front cover. cleaning all the rtv off the oilpan was a JOB. I couldnt imagine doing it in the truck. On reinstilation I put a nice gouge in the pan also!!! theres a bolt sticking out of the crossmember that the oilpan hits. such a fun job!!

on top of that, the oil pan still leaks!!!
I dont know of anything I could have done differently.
I even bought the big tube of ultra black for the caulking gun!
I was spackling that ****
all surfaces were beyond clean, maybe I should have bought a gasket?
that seems unheard of from what ive read
