Bottom line is YES it can be done, but collectively it's easier to pull the engine and replace the oil pan.

There is a gasket sealer that has sit for 24 hours and it's easier to do while the motor is upside down, if not you need to prop it up and allow it to sit there.

FWIW, my first time removing the engine took all of 8 hours doing it outside in cold weather...

BTW - why are you replacing the pan?

Do what job? And yes, mine is a powerstroke - a 7.3.

Also - where are you located?
