The Chevy manual's procedure is to raise the front of the engine off the mounts and insert a wood block (like 454 said) between the crossmember pedestal and the engine clam shell. They also say to rotate the engine crank to a certain postion (can't remember). Apparently, this moves the crank throws out of the way so the pan can slip out the back.
