    Honestly the best way to do a pan gasket would be to support the motor from a bar across the strut towers and drop the K member... While your in there buy some Katech rod bolts and put them in too

    Nope, but it sure makes life easier. Dropping the K member is much less involved. And us old folk don't like laying over the fenders anymore than we have to
