In a word: NO! Motor mount bolts will need to come out, maybe the exhaust will have to come loose. Do NOT jack the motor up by the oil pan..you may cave it in if you try. It's not an easy job, but not the worst either. Also, you may need to remove the distributor cap to prevent it hitting the firewall when jacking up the motor. I've seen guys raise the motor using a hydralic jack and a piece of wood against the balancer then place 2x4 pieces under the motor mounts in case the jack slips..be careful!
