In the process of installing my 261 into our '50 tin woody wagon, I inflicted some small dents in the oil pan. I'd like to tap them out and repaint. Can I drop the pan with the engine installed or must I pull it out? I have access to an indoor lift.

Thanks folks!

I had to loosen motor mount bolts and Jack the engine up a little.

Yes, you can. It will be easier using a lift than laying on your back in the grass, but I did it once laying on my back in the street. That was many moons ago when I was younger, stronger... and dumber.

Ah shades of 1954, friend and i laid on our backs in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco installing a new clutch in his 50 Merc. He insisted we did not need a clutch alignment shaft as he had one. That turned out to be something of a falsehood. Finally found one in a garage that the guy would lend and got the job done, neither fog nor rain nor the local Police stopped us.
