    70 RR with 440. Minor oil leak is making me remove the oil pan & re-do the windage tray & gaskets. Can the pan be removed without taking off the cross link ?? And is there a part # for the higher capacity pan. I just want to make sure I have the correct pan on it.

    Nope. Just knock off the cross link at the pitman arm & Idler arm to give you room to remove the pan. If you leave the tie rod ends alone, your alignment will be fine.

      I believe you must drop the center link.Should be able to leave the tie rods attached and pull the link down to give you enough room.

          Remove the centerlink from the inner tie rod ends and the idler arm only. You then can swing the centerlink away for access. Did it this way since 50 years ago.

            I haven't looked at the part # yet. Is it on the outside or inside of the pan ?

            Should be on the back bottom, by the center link. Big numbers, hard to miss, unless they aren't there.

              if you'd like six quarts, put on the factory Hemi pan.

                .... 3 digits, Like 187 or 699 or whatever. Yours should probably be 402. One inch tall numbers stamped from inside.
