Lol! I said it was easier to pull the engine! Its tight quarters and hard to do the distributor should be pulled and sometimes the short shaft! So the pump can bolt in place! And if you got it unbolted to drop in the pan you can bolt it back! Tip the pan, get in different body positions, Use cuss words, spit on it, LOL If you get frustrated take a coffee break you'll get it! I wish I was there to help LOL! Some times I kick my dog and things go right together!!! but he got smart with age and hides while I'm working LOL

You did put the pump back in the pan before sliding the pan in? Silly question Of course You did!

Absolutely.......By the time all the swearing and knuckle busting is done, you could have pulled it, flipped it over and done it right.....no fuss no muss (mess)......Probably, you don't have a hoist, but with all that aggravation, I would be going and renting one.

I'll throw my 2 cents in...

69NovaSS: You've got a lot to learn but atleast you're asking for help. This is for whoever may read this because I expect you're either done by now or pulled the engine. It is possible to pull the pan with a stock small block engine in the car. Done a few and it's a pain but make it easier and get all you can out of the way and get the engine as high as you safely can. All of what others are saying is pretty much what you need to do. I carefully jack up the front of the engine with a block of wood on the balancer/damper then put wood between the motor mounts for safety. With the wood on the balancer, you can't turn over the engine but I've never needed to clear the counter weights. I've gotten away with just removing the small stock distributer cap. HEI or similar large or tall distributers will have to be pulled so they don't hit the firewall. I've seen broken caps and distrubuters if you don't watch it. A Nova and Camaro, being rear steer, will have to have the center link pulled and it's actually easier pulling the whole link and tie rod ends as earlier described. Remove the converter dust cover and you should be able to get the pan off with the pump installed as long it's all stock stuff. If you have a deep pan and extended pickup or something racy or maybe a big block, well, you should pull the engine. When going back together, you should have the pump with pickup installed and correctly torqued before you put up the pan. Don't forget the drive shaft and index it into the distributer as necessary if you didn't pull the distributer. Also, I weld even the stock pickups on or use an aftermarket bolt on so that you never lose it. If you can't afford a one piece gasket, use some silicone to put the end seals up and some on both sides of the rail gaskets. Also, use some fine fishing line to tie (not too tight) the rail gaskets to the pan to hold them in place then simply snip and pull out after starting some of the other bolts. Hopefully you were able to discover the cause of your low oil pressure.
