The procedure is done, the guy has had the car back.I left it up on the rack to check for leaks. I didn't see any.you are correct about the oil pan there is only probably 2 or 3 in of working room.what I did is I took a really long thin screwdriver and sanded all of the old anaerobic sealant off the oil pan and the bottom of the engine block so I could put new anaerobic sealant back on. I really took my time with this particular part. I was thinking that the timing cover to head location was a much tighter fit then what it was. The timing cover actually slides on fairly easy underneath the head gasket.the important part is to make sure that you get the anaerobic sealant up around the bottom of the head and on top of the timing cover when you make that final connection.I also really took my time when I put the anaerobic sealant back on the oil pan and made sure that I was able to get to every square inch of the oil pan.if I had to do it over again I would probably go ahead and pull the motor I could definitely get the job done a lot faster if I would have done that.I just wasn't in a hurry to do the job at all I had two days to get it done and I have a lift so that made it so much easier. I hope this information helps somebody else that would be willing to take on this particular job. The only tool that I needed to go by was a quarter inch t30 torx socket.it was super skinny so it would slide in between the drive shaft on the passenger side and the oil pan.
