I also pulled off the oil pan. It was a little stubborn, but a couple hits with the new dead blow hammer and a pry from a screwdriver freed it up. I am definitely going to need a new gasket.
The other half of the gasket and the inside of the engine.
Next came the transmission oil.
Then the drive-shaft oil and the the final drive oil, which are separate. The drive-shaft drain plug is hiding right behind the rod for the rear brake.
This thing is now bone dry and ready to come apart in a big way. That, however, will have to wait until after a trip to the machine shop for one very important thing. Find out what that is next time.
