Removing bolts from ford aod

Hello.
I need to remove the pan from my trans, but the cross member is blocking the rear bolts. Is this common? The trans is in a ford 1983 f-150. Am I going to have to remove the cross member? UGG!
Just one more thing, should there be a drain plug? I cannot find one. Please help

Many times the cross member has to be moved to the rear to gain access to the rear pan bolts. Sometimes you can get by with just removing the mount bolts and raising the trans up until it hits the floorboard, then using a universal joint socket to get the bolts. It is best to remove the rear bolts first in those situations. You still want to drop the front of the pan first.

No they don't have drain plugs.
