Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see will have to drop the pan, which will need you to remove the front end. 6 bolts on the bolster, radius arms, and drag links. You can just roll it out with the rad if you drain and disconnect the hoses. Oh yeah, self explanatory to remove the hood (get a buddy to help) drain the oil, and block her up good at the tranny.

Drop the pan, don't forget the 4 bolts that connect it to the bell housing. There are two at the very front and may be hard to see, easy to miss. Front main is two part rope seal. Lots of people get by with just replacing the bottom half, easy. Full replacement requires you to drop the crank or try and fish the top half out. Then reverse for install.

Pan gasket is easy, just forget everything I said about the front main. There are two others that could leak, timing cover and governor, but we won't get into that for now, until you let us know exactly where its coming from

No gray hair required, just lots of wrench time.
