You will not be able to lower just one half of the crank. You will need to lower the both ends of the crank evenly. Lowering just one half you are asking the crank to bend. So, loosen all the mains leaving enough threads screwed in to hold up the crank off your face. At least three turns. Then push the bearing out with the tang coming out first. Use something soft so the crank isn't damaged.

Never Again!

I did one engine overhaul without pulling the engine many years ago. After that experience, I will never, ever, ever, ever do that again. I'd take the whole car apart to get the engine out before I'd endure that aggravation again.

For Vans, drop driveshaft and transmission from below. Remove both front seats and engine cover. Cover dash and flooring with heavy plastic taped down. Pull engine through passenger door with a hoist. You will have to remove accessories as needed to get it out. I've done three Chevrolet vans this way over the years with success. 70's and 80's vans. I'm not sure if the later models are any different, but the bottom line is, pull it to rebuild it.

A real close friend asked me to help him do a overhaul on a 1 ton ford with out pulling the engine recently. I flat refused, told him I'd help him pull it and help him rebuild it, but not in the truck. olnolan

Nothing like laying under a vehicle with bad light while the blood drains from your arms while your eye's, nose, mouth, and ear's get a lube job. Like you
OLNOLAN been there done that. My dad forgot to insert an upper rod bearing
upon assembly and when I went to start it (well, you know). I sent him to the store for a six pack while I started pulling the pan back off.
