You need to remove fan, loosen tranny mounts, loosen motor mounts and then lift motor. It's tight but should be able to replace oil pump.

Easiest to just have motor pulled. Now is good time to replace old motor mounts as well.

Your going to have to raise the motor to the roof is you don't plan on pulling the motor out.

After you get the motor raised, you will need to drop the pan down and remove the oil pump before you can pull the pan out. Reverse to re-install.
