Re: Replacing Oil Pan
Not the M25 but just a generic cross section of an engine.. Note that the oil pickup drops down to the pan floor.. In most cases you'll need to lift the engine enough to have the clearance to drop the pan to clear the pickup.
I suspect relatively few installations will give you that much lift while essentially 'in place'.
