I've got all the bolts , out and the pan cam edown and couple of inches, but won't come out all the way. Am I missing something here? Do I need to loosen or drop the front end down, to pull it out all the way? Any input would be appreciated. The power steering rack is in the way.

This is a tough one, VERY tight. I couldn't really get the rack out of a junk car without lifting the engine just a little, enough to flex the engine mounts. YOu probably have to lift the engine a couple inches both to clear the rack and also the transmission when you slide it back. You either need a cherry picker or a come a long and a solid beam. You can't really lift it with a board under the oil pan now can you:) I don't know what else to tell you, unless...you pull the tranny. Rent a cherry picker if you have to. You really want a stable way to hold that engine. Why are you pulling the pan off?
