You might be able to pull out the front axle to change the pan gasket, but it's easier if you just pull the engine.
this was a hacks way of fixing this !
the 3.0 has a known problem with spitting out the gasket, ford makes a "updated" gasket that cures this problem. your "hacks" butcher repair wont last long!
