If it's just the gasket, you can raise the motor slightly, drop ther pan onto the
crossmember, clean the old gasket and slip the new one around the pan from the bottom.
This is assuming the gasket is one piece, I "think" 88 or 89 was the first year for
the one piece silicone gaskets. The old style 4 piece sets can also be done this way
with some patience.
