At least my motor'* still pretty tight.
It'* not bad. Disconnect the oil level sensor, couple bolts for the plastic flywheel cover, one more bolt for the bracket for that cover, then the pan bolts themselves. Pretty straightforward. The premium Felpro gaslet from Advance was $33 or so and comes with the tiny gasket for the pickup tube in the pan. The tube comes out with two 8mm head bolts. The plastic cover and bracket use 10mm, pan bolts are 13mm. Actually there'* a couple bolts under the timing cover that are like 3/8''. I'm convinced the LN3 still has a few SAE thread/size bolts here and there. Anyway, yeah, it'* pretty simple and doesn't take long.
For the pan, I wiped it out, then sloshed some diesel fuel in it, then did some more wiping. Haven't put it back yet. I'll try to wipe down everything I can in the bottom end with a fresh rag before putting the pan and everything back. I did remove the oil pressure sensor and reinstalled it with some Rector Seal (teflon based liquid sealant we use in plumbing, aka "dope").
