In resting position, negative. The K-Member supporting the engine is in the way. Look as hard as possible for the bolt in the gear set. I'm really hoping that it's still on the top somewhere. Cranking the motor while it's still up there will cause massive damage to the timing gear set.
If you have an engine hoist and a couple buddies you can undo the motor mounts, lift the engine as high as it will go, and now the tricky part. Get access to the flywheel/flexplate unbolt all the pan bolts (sorry remove the oil and pull the PCM so the engine won't start) and drop the pan as far as it will go. Can you reach in? If not pull the pan rearward as far as it will go till it hits the front most crank lobe. Use the starter (might need one of those cheap starter buttons from the auto parts store) and crank the motor till that lobe is up in the block. Move the pan farther back till the next lobe and repeat BUT don't let the first lobe come around and smack the pan. Must be careful. Repeat till the pan is out. No telling if this will work on a diesel but I have only done it on '70's cars.
