    1. Drain oil
    2. Remove alum flywheel cover
    3. Remove starter.
    4. Loosen rear muffler support at tail pipes, and support with blanket rolls.
    5. Remove 2 sets spring-loaded exhaust "hangers".
    6. Remove driver-side catalytic converter. May require you to move the left and right exhaust pipes rearward an inch or two.
    7. Remove oil pan bolts, nuts, anti-knock sensor shields, and a few other misc. attachments.
    8. Remove oil pan. You should have just enough front clearance between the bottom of the timing cover and the cross-brace to do this, especially if front crank bearings are in horizontal position. Mine were. I lucked out. If they are not then just turn front harmonic balancer/pulley using socket on large bolt that attaches the balancer/pulley to the front of the crank shaft. Don't worry, If you turn the bolt in a clockwise direction all will be okay as this is the direction the engine turns when running.
