Hey all, Happy ThanxzGiving! Hope everyone had a nice holiday. My question is, can you remove the pistons from the block by just removing the oil pan, and loosening the bolts on connecting rods to the crankshaft journal, without removing the crankshaft? Say if you just needed to re-ring your pistons, or put in matched lightweight pistons? (although I guess you wouldn't put in lightweight pistons without also putting in a lightweight crank, so I guess it wouldn't matter...) Also, has anyone ever completely rebuilt their engine without taking it out of the car? How possible is this? Is the intake manifold very difficult to remove? Thanx in adv.
