I got roped into helping a buddy replace the oil pan on his sub. The threads on the oil pan plug got stripped. We already tried a self tapping plug, but that didn't work. We are now stuck replacing the oil pan. The stupid Chiltons book says to remove two drive shaft nuts and 1 upper nut and bolt on the right side and then turn the steering wheel to the left. What the h*ll?? Anybody have any suggestions as to how to get the pan out easily? I am contemplating using an engine hoist to jack up the eng and remove the motor mount bolts. That migh tbe easier than what the book says to do. Any ideas?
