From what i have heard, the proper way to do it is to remove the engine. This is because the engine should be turned upside down so that the pan seals to the engine properly by gravity. It is a silicone type gasket so thats why. Now my ford dealer says they can do them by just jacking up the engine like you stated and replacing it. So i guess either way would work, but one requires a lot more work with possibly better results.

There's a guy here who's a Ford Tech and says the engine really should be removed and inverted on a stand to do it right. He also says you can get it out without the trans in by lifting it as high as you can then reaching in and disconnecting the oil pick-up tube so it doesn't hit the shallow part of the pan when you draw it out.

Also, have you seen this ->

what happens to the rusty pan, does it just rot out and continue to run through the motor?
