Hi,

Anybody out there replaced the oil pan gasket on a 258?
I want to do it without pulling the engine. Do I have to undo the motor mounts, or timing cover? Is this even do-able in my home shop without a lift?

Thanks!
 
On a CJ you need to put a jack under the bellhousing, disconnect the right motor mount, then raise the motor up enough to remove the pan.
 
Finally got this done yesterday. I had to remove the starter and right side motor mount to get at a couple of the pan bolts. I used the rubber Felpro gasket but had to remove the curved part on the very back of the pan to make it all fit. A bead of rtv fixed that up just right.

Thanks for your help, no more drips which makes my cj a better citizen!
