1982 2.8L camaro berlinetta oil pan gasket

do I really have to jack up the motor to do this job or can I drop it and work with a little space to do it?

I have an 87 camero with the 2.8 i know from my experince with mine there isnt enough room to drop the pan to get even the gasket in there let alone clean the pan properly and not get alot of it in the pan where it could be picked up by the oil pump pick up. What i would do is take the dizzy cap loose and jack it up like 5 inches should be enough to get the pan out. You wont need to unhook anything just make sure you dont kink any hard lines or crush anything. Goslow and if it doesnt want to go any higher check it out dont force it

Look at the driver side front of the engine there should be a lifting loop there and also on the passenger rear should also have one. They are bolted to the heads. i wouldnt unhook the trans mount that way the engine stays fairly straight and centered front the back to make it easier to lower it back down
