Since I am mechanically inept, I would have to get a local oil changing place (I trust everyone there, known them for years) to change my oil pan.

Today they said they couldn't do it without raising the engine couple inches. I thought it can just slide out because the crossmember is well below the pan.

Any ideas?

You can actually remove the pan with lifting the engine a few inches AND rotating the crank as you pull out the pan. Otherwise, the back end of the pan will hang-up on the crank's counter weights. This same process would apply to a 71-73 Mach1 Mustang.
