Paul,
I still think my way is better.
Buy a case of beer.
Invite all your dock friends.
Have them all stand on the bow.
Drain your oil.
Drink the beer before, during and after draining the oil.

Now doesn't that sound like more fun?  :D

P.S. Rum works too   :thumb:

I removed the oilace the gasket l pan to repand also after 25yrs to check the build up in the oil pan.  Removing the oil pan (18 bolts) was slow but can be done without raising the engine, the 4 on the back side were difficult. Removing the old gasket was a challenge until I borrowed a special tool from the mechanic at Torresen.
I am having Torresen put in the new gasket and replace the oil pan.  Cannot afford to loose any more blood.  It did take me a whole day.

I know this is an old thread but I need to replace the gasket in the oil pan.  Paul, I see you removed the oil pan without raising the engine but did Torresen have to raise the engine to install the new gasket?  Those back bolts are difficult to see.
