Default oil pan/carb question

when removing the oil pan with the engine in the truck, the back lip is getting stuck on something...how do I get the oil pan off? Is it the tranny it's getting stuck on?

if the secondary butterfly opens with similar resistance as the primary, does that mean it's okay and I don't have to disassemble it and clean it? Treeroot I think you know what I'm talking about, we had this discussion about filing the screw heads etc.

Might be the clutch cover.

There is a small cover at the back that helps when you remove it, like Chris said. Is the pan loose? Remember the oil pump dealy is also sticking down inside it pretty far, close to the drain plug.

yeah some kind of cover...29 bolts in all got the oil pan off - what a pain. But at least most of the cork gasket came off with the pan too, just a wee little bit of stuff to take off the block. Bottom of the pistons look okay, not really sure what I'm looking for and it's kinda tight down there . Gonna put it back together as soon as I get a new gasket.

Any opinions on the carb?

I think I've got an extra cork pan gasket, too.

In most cases the secondaries are frozen shut and won't move at all. If yours moves you should be fine. If you wanted to you could remove the shaft from the baseplate and make sure it isn't damaged or rusted. If you do, you will need to find new screws though. The ones that hold the butterfly on usually break off even after you file the backside of the screw. The factory intentionally damages the threads so the screw won't end up in the engine.

Sweet, thanks Rootster, that's what I thought. I think I'm just going to leave it and when I put it back together make sure my linkage is together properly - I have a feeling it isn't.

So just for fun check out one of my typical intake valves.
And next check out one of my exhaust valves. Sorry for the bad pics, but you get the idea.
