hmmm. 2wd, maybe. You're still going to have to jack the engine up a great deal to give yourself enough room to pull the pan out of the way

If I remember correctly, when I had the oil pan gasket done on my old '92 F150 2wd with the 5.0 liter (302 ci) it was when I had the exhaust Y pipe done. With the Y pipe out of the way, they where able to get to the oil pan easier.

I agree w BMW. Get a nice one piece gasket to replace it, the later OEM rubber gaskets w metal reinforcement were pretty slick. These may have been in place by '93. Otherwise a nice aftermarket rubber one piece, I think I got a Victor from Napa.

Worst case you'll need to pull the upper IM to tip the motor back further, but this is unlikely. You'll need a kinda funky long torx bit to get at one bolt on the IM if it comes to this.

Well, to answer the question, yes, it *could* be done - however, it's going to be a PIA to do and you better have some free time to do it if this is your daily driver....

You don't mention if your F-Series is a 5.0, 5.8 or the 6cyl... I'm going to guess it's a 5.0, as 99% of them on the roads have the 5.0 in them...

Here's a very informative link from another site I belong to since I own a 1994 Full Size Bronco... the entire tech & pics in the link below will also apply to an F-Series truck with a 5.0 or 5.8.... Read though it and look at the pics - the process would be the same for replacing a pan gasket, oil pan or oil pump....

http://www.fullsizebronco.com/forum/...ad.php?t=27686

The best way is to pull the engine and do it that way, but, if that is not an option, the only other option is as outlined in that link...

Also, be sure to purchase the Ford Racing oil pan gasket (part # FMS-M-6710-A50), it's a one piece design (Felpro also makes a similar gasket, but, I've always used the Ford Racing gaskets and never had an issue) and it's only $18 from Summit Racing:



http://store.summitracing.com/partde...w=32&N=700+115

Also, while the pan is down (or off), if you are going to replace the oil pump - go with a Melling pump (part # MEL-M68 at Summit Racing). It's a standard volume pump and fits all 302/5.0's from 1968-2001 - for $22, it's a good piece of mind knowing your oil pump is new....

But if he isn't going to pull the motor or get it up high enough to pull the pan out from under the motor, he's going to have to go with a 2 piece gasket, right? I mean, that's the purpose of those 2 piece gaskets, right?

If you disconnect the motor mounts and lift the motor enough to put a short 4x4 under each mount you should be able to do the job. Just watch as you pick up the motor don't break anything.

wait a minute! all you need to do is remove the starter and drop the pan down as far as it will go. you can work the gasket around the pan and bolt it right back up. i have done probably 50 like that.

Did anyone notice that the original question was asked in January 2007 and the response was done yesterday 11/1/08 By this time.....I hope the gasket has been changed And yes....you can change it without removing the engine. i did my 1994 F-150 when my wonderful F*rd gasket failed.

I replaced a pan gasket in a fox body Mustang once, without removing the pan. I lowered the pan on the crossmember, slid the old gasket out, slid the new gasket in, and reassembled. It was a pita, but I did that, replaced the rear main seal, and the clutch, all in a day.
