I recently acquired a 1965 Continental. It was running poorly when it was parked 3 years ago. The previous owner said he thought it had a piston or ring problem but he really did not know. I started the motor recently and it sounded as if one cylinder had no compression and it blew blue smoke out the left exhaust. My question is: To effect this repair can I remove the pan without removing the motor? Any help would be appreciated. Jim

Oil pans are usually removable on almost any motor without having to pull it out. In rare cases you have to raise the engine a little..
