ok i got a 350SBC with a TH350. i tried to remove my oil pan earlier today but couldnt. i remover the flywheel cover, fan shroud, and my HEI distributer cap. i removed the through bolt on the motor mounts and removed the trany mount bolts. i jacked up my motor as much as i could and still could not get the pan out. when i go to pull the pan out the back of the pan hits the flywheel just enough that i cant wiggle it out. am i missin something???

The way I have been able to do is holding the sump pull down as you push forward till back of pan hits the pickup or oil pump. It should only need that little bit to get past the flexplate. Do you have a little bar that goes engine mount to engine mount?

The last oil pan I resealed that way (a 283 in a '65 Chevy Malibu) went pretty much the same way yours did. I think it would have been quicker and easier in the long run to just pull the tranny and engine as a combo.

Sure it's a pain, but if you can do without the car for a couple of days, it's a great time to pull the engine, fix the leak, repaint the engine, exhaust manifolds or headers, clean-up the firewall and fender wells, tape up those dangling wires and repaint everything under the hood and put it all back together and remedy that leak that's really just bothering the hell out of you! Or maybe not.... :D
