Its a C-3 with a 434 stroker,7 qt pan. The center link is quite close,other than that I could probably change the pan in the car. I would not do that. I would take the engine out and put it on the stand.If I have to do something else like a crank seal or timing chain,its easy with the engine on a stand.
I use a roller cam so I would inspect the gear and back of the manifold. Maybe do a quick wash and detail before it goes back in. Thats just me though,,
