You will have to remove the pan to do it, so pulling the engine is pretty much a given. I don't think there's enough room with the K-frame on a 5th Ave to pull the pan with the engine still in place.

I would have to agree. I just pulled a 318 out of a Diplomat (same car...different badge) last fall, and it didn't look like there would be a lot of room to access or manuever the front of the pan. [&:]
