GXP trials and tribulations….Fixed the oil pan leak but the car Gods were not kind.. All I can say is, pull the engine to make your life easier if easy can be used with a Northstar. I tried to do this in the car and if you can, God bless you! Two of the main bolts broke removing them....sigh...but I got the broken bolts out after removing the engine. Getting those broken main bolts out was a 2 beer celebratory toast! Replaced the main bolts with new, oil distribution manifold plate, main bearings, O2 sensors, belt tensioner, Alternator, valve cover gaskets, coolant seals, water pump and all the other misc you can get to while the engine was out. This job is not for the faint of heart. It's all back together and runs great. Now the wife says sell it. I said hell no, not after all that work I did. Lol

She actually might be on to something here. You may want to listen. I know we don't like to do that. :)
