Like Doc said, if it's majorly damaged, you'll have to yank the whole thing anyway, but if you want to, you can pull the pan to check it out without pulling the engine or trans. You do have to turn the crank so the timing mark is in the 6:00 position so the counterweights won't interfere as much, and you have to remove the fan shroud and distributor cap so you can raise the engine up. Remove the motor mount through-bolts and jack the motor up until you can get a chunk of 2x4 between the mount and the frame bracket on each side. You should be able to work the pan around enough to get it out, although it's a bit of a tight squeeze. You may have to unbolt the oil pump before it will come all the way out. If the steering linkage gets in the way, just unbolt the idler arm from the frame and pull it down a bit.
