f150 oil pan?

my cousin has a 92 f150 2wd with a 300 inline six. the oil pan is leaking and needs a new gasket. i havent got to look under it yet, is it possible to get the pan off to change the gasket without pulling the motor out?

My son for a very short time had a f150 4x4 with 300-6. I think I was able to get the pan off w/engine in the truck but once you get it to drop down you have to monkey around and unbolt the oil pump or pick up to get it completely off. In all my years of owning over 130 cars/trucks that truck was the most poorly engineered vehicle I've seen. It even had a automatic blower under the hood that came when you turned the engine off in order to keep the freakin injectors from melting. Again never seen anything like it...

You actually don't have to completly remove the pan, just drop it as far as it will go. Remove the old gasket, then you "fish" the new one around and under the oil pump pick up, and if you have a good gasket set (like Fel Pro, ect) you will have the pegs called "snap ups". They screw in @ the corners, and allow you to snap the gasket up, followed by the pan, then install all the rest of the bolts. Flat rate on this job is between 3-4 hours, with the short cut, on a clean-ish truck, I've had it done in less than 45 minutes.
