pulling the pan.

on some cars you can loosen the motor mounts. jack up the engine and put wood blocks under the mounts. turn the crank to a get throw clearance, drop the oil pump pickup into the pan and then slide it out. still a real hassel. we have drilled out broken exhaust studs a couple of times then used a longer bolt and nut. but if you have my luck the one that broke is in a spot where you can't drill a thru hole.
