I would like to replace the timing chain on my 1962 390ci without pulling the engine. It looks like I have to drop the oil pan to do this. Can it be done with out removing the engine? Ideas please. Thanks Dave

I did it on my 61 without removing the oil pan. I did it on my 62 with removing the oil pan had to take the take the steering linkage off the pitman arm and the idler arm off the frame.
