You are most likely going to have do as Ray said and pull engine up with cherry picker or GOOD JACK to back the tranny off the rear main seal. Keep in mind that The oil pan has a front and rear main seal that may need to be replaced when you do this. Not a quick job. Get a Chilton book and read the section regarding oil pan gaskets and seals. Hope this helps
Two ways no need to pull engine One lets start with cherry picker engine hoist unbolt mounts slide bolts Lift to desired height of two inches 4x4 accross inner tire wells now chain down to 4x4 pull pan off 10 minutes done The other way is mobile home jack stands under motor mounts and mounted 4x4 at top chained down never on the front clip but on inner tire well They make a specific engine lift on wheel wells for this your not lifting engine high enough but enough to get the pan off safely
If you just can't get to that last bolt (have you tried a universal joint or wobbly?), then you will have to hang the engine up to remove the motor mount. Lay a heavy board across the fenders with blankets between board and fender to protect the paint. Chain up or tie up the engine to the board so it won't drop when mount is removed. Of course, if you have a "cherry picker" hoist you could hold the engine up with that. It won't be a great weight to hold with the other mounts still secure. If the radiator won't let you get to the mount, take it off too.
When you are done, and oil pan back on, just use a jack under the oil pan with a piece of wood between jack and oil pan, to raise engine for installing the mount back together.
Drain the oil completely, remove all the bolts and drop the pan. On 84 I don't believe you have to remove the tranny. Just remove the bolts.

You shouldn't have to for head gaskets, makes it easier but not necessary. For oil pan, you may have too. Depending on how much room there is between pan and crossmember and if pan is in tranny. Some cars the oil pan is 1/4" behind tranny but don't think that is the deal on your car.

Comes up and out of the 'Dogbox' with a cherry picker. (Can you say No Fun?)
You go through the side sliding door with a cherry picker.
Take the engine cover loose, and remove it. Now attach your lifting cradle, (Or chain with bolts so that the chain doesn't slide in the lifting hook), to the top of the engine. Lift up and back. Keep working it up, and out, of that small compartment. Use three people, and BE CAREFUL! Always have an exit planned in case something goes wrong. Stand away from the engine, not crowded down in there as you remove it.
pull all bolts get a engine puller or as i call it a cherry picker and hook one chain to the hook by the passenger side closest to the cab and the other side to the driverside by the tailgate.then get another chain and do exactly the opposite so that you make an X the hook the cherry picker/engine puller to the center and lift slowly..
