- Here's the procedure from MoTor's Manual:

ENGINE OILING
OIL PAN REMOVAL
1935-48 Ford & Mercury—Remove the
engine mounting bolts and loosen the lower radiator hose at the engine end. Disconnect the oil level gauge tube at the wl pan and remove the oil filter discharge line. Disconnect the exhaust pipe flange (both sides on V8s). Use a wooden block between the oil pan and a jack and raise the engine as far as possible. Insert a wooden block 1-1/2" thick between the front engine mounting and rubber support, after which remove the jack. Raise the front of the car with a hoist until the front wheels are clear of the floor.
On V8s, remove the exhaust crossover pipe and starter motor.
On Sixes and V8s, disconnect the oil pan from the transmission case and un-hook the brake pedal return spring. Remove all cap screws and lower the oil pan.
On some models, it may be necessary to move the fan pulley forward to provide sufficient clearance to drop the pan. It may also be necessary to disconnect the ball cap and block the radius rod down to hold it out of the way.

There are a couple spelling typos in the manual but you should be able to figure it out.

As far as the radius rods - they WILL need to be disconnected at the center and moved down and out of the way
