Re: Oil Pan Replacement
I replaced mine a few years ago, and once I finally got the exhaust unbolted it wasn't that bad. The tab that holds one of the exhaust bolts bent in, and they would just spin around. I had to take a small die grinder to the nut to get it out. After that it wasn't too bad. I don't recall seeing any way to get the pan out without taking the pipes off. I also had to remove the starter as I recall.
As long as the nuts come off easily, you should be in good luck.
