Chevelle sb-350 oil pan.

Hey guy I was wondering if it's possible to get the oil pan out from under a 72 Chevelle with a an 350 by sliding the transmission back and or out.
I've tried everything I can to get it out without removing the engine or transmission so far and have given up on doing it under the vehicle.
I just want to know if it's possible to remove it with the transmission out of the way as apposed to pulling the motor.

I pulled the pan off my 70 chevelle 396 about 10 times and never removed the trans.
How far do you have the front of the motor lifted?
Did you rotate the crank so the front journal is up?

I got the motor mounts loose and 2x4s blocking the engine up I got the air cleaner and distributor cap off.
I have the crank rotated so the front lines go up.
I have everything pulled off the front of the engine down to the timing chain.
I can't go higher as I am already hitting the firewall/trans tunnel.
I have the converter cover off.
I also have the transmission mount loose. I seem to be hitting the flywheel and it seems like if I could get the transmission to scoot back I could get it out.

you’ve done about all of it.
I quess you’ll need to pull the tranny back or just yank the motor.

Thanks I wonder if anyone could chime in that's done it with just moving the transmission.
It all looks clear but I'd hate to get to that point just to run Into problems.... If the transmission is back ithink it appears to be clear.

I was thinking possibly dropping the trans crossmember to lower the trans would let you lift the front of the motor higher.
Might be just enough room then.
