On a TLB I suppose there is a fair bit of work, moreso given you alredy have the head off... You need to be able to move the engine away from the transmission about a foot... or at least 6" and lift it out.
It would be a lot easier if the loader and hoe were already off.
No doubt it can be blocked and the subframe removed if necessary but nothing will be easy.
Mabey you want to revaluate wether or not you want to rering it now. I'm just saying realistically... if you're going to get into rings... you probably want to look at the bores and probably sleeve that block if it's suspect, then do the remainder of the bottom end.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

There is a useful trick for separation of the pan from the bolster. You will need to remove the radiator and disconnect oil coolers, steering lines etc. Then you remove two of the bolts that hold the bolster to the pan, and replace them with two that are about four inches longer. Then you remove the other two and then you can slide the bolster ahead a little and out of the way. Be careful with the washers between the bolster and pan, they are SHIMS. The rear seal is at the back end of the motor. As Rod says it is probably due to fail also, so if you have the time it would be good to replace it as well. Both jobs require some jacking. and blocking for safety. Use a jack to lower the oil pan. IT IS HEAVY. Most people roll the rear away from the front. Get a trailer jack and fabricate a bracket that will enable you to attach the jack to the side of the rear housing for stability and ease of rolling.
