The seal between the head and the timing cover is a known leak point as it is. Oil leakage from that area gets on the serp belt - that's what led to my second 9000T head gasket replacement. Trying to slide the timing cover into the space between an intact oil pan and an intact cylinder head would be a very tight fit, and the gasket compound that you're supposed to put on the top surface of the timing cover would certainly be wiped off, causing a poor seal. Now, maybe it's possible to do the job by dropping the oil pan, but I wouldn't know.
