Question about Cars & Trucks
Bad idea to cut any fixed cross members. They have been designed by engineers which have calculated the strength required for that member to do the job. If it could be cut and bolted in it would have been done in production to save money on repair costs for warranty work. Lift the motor is the answer but if you are not qualified to do the work the get an accredited mechanic to do the job.

my opinion is to do an oil change while you are at it to save some stress. draining the old oil will help from having to hold the pan full of oil and tipping it over, etc. then simply take off the bolts, which should be anywhere from8-12 or so. make sure you clean both sides of the pan. the lip and the side thats on the block. place the new gasket on the pan and put four nuts [corners are best] finger tight. then insert the rest of the bolts and make sure you dont over torque!!!

its a simple job no exact torque is needed as the bolts you are tightening will only require a ten millimeter socket to do it equivalent to a 1/4 inch bolt just snug them and top it all of with a half turn beyond that.simple job really .
