Instructions for removing the oil pan from a1949 ford Tudor. Do I need to remove the engine?
If the frame is not in the way you should be able to pull it in the car. if it is i would just raise the front of the motor up and pull it down.

sadly I don't think there is. The oil pan is huge and sections of the frame are in the way of getting it in and out without damaging the pan severly. pulling that massive engine and replacing the pan, then putting the engine back in and reconnecting everything in 14 hours is a good estimate. sorry for the bad news

SOURCE: removal of oilpan
the engine needs to be supported from the top. your oil pan is most likely hanging up on the oil pump. to remove, the subframe must be lowered abit after you've supported the engine from the top.

To remove the engine oil pan either the engine has to be lifted all the way off of the motor mounts and the oil pan should just clear the flex-plate and transmission, or the front axle dropped down out of the way, or the transmission and flex-plate will have to be removed.
Usually if the engine can be lifted enough to fit a piece of 2x4 wood between the motor mounts and the frame then the oil pan will usually just have enough clearance to be removed from the rear and the oil pan should just clear the transmission and the flex-plate. Also, be sure to check that the fan blade does not damage the fan shroud when lifting the engine.
Let me know if you require any further assistance.
