There should be a lifting point, A metal bar with a hole in it. Front and rear. It'* mounted to the head on the exhaust manifolds.

ok so I was able to grab the hoist from work to support my motor but just realized the gasket they gave me is a Vin K model. Do the supercharged and non supercharged motors use the same oil pan gasket? They did this to me once before when I did my valve covers, they gave me the wrong ones. I just wanna make sure before I open the box.

I can't say for sure. Chances are you have a reusable pan gasket. It will be a thicker rubber gasket with ridges running around it, it will look like this

I have yet to open a trans on a bonneville and not find one of these gaskets.

I'm doing the oil pan, not the tranny pan. I checked a couple stores and it seems to be the same for both SC and non SC.

alright last question. The gasket I got is a solid rubber gasket, am I going to need to use rtv any where or do I just swap gaskets and go?

You will definitely want to put a dab of RTV in the corners, where the front cover and the rear cover meet the block:

Even with that rubber oil pan gasket, I would recommend supplementing with a complete bead of RTV all the way around:

Note: the pan shown is a Series 3 that uses no rubber gasket anyway; still I would recommend RTV plus the gasket for an aluminum Series 2 pan. I had to fix a leak on the wife'* 2004 LeSabre oil pan, where the rubber gasket had broken. I used a new gasket plus a complete bead of RTV, just to the outside of the rubber.

Thanks, but I saw your post a little too late. I just finished and let it run about 20 min, and no leaks. I let it cool and than let it run about another 15 min just to make sure and still no leaks. So everything is good, and I'll be sure to use RTV next time, but for now everything is good. Thanks to everyone who answered all my questions.
