If someone knew...

  7. 2.3 tib removal to remove the oil pan?

    I'm thinking about getting a 97 ranger for my turbo project and I'll need to put my forged pistons in.. my main question would be while I have the tib out would it be possible or worth it to remove whatever left to drop the pan and get access to the crank?
