Jack the motor a couple inches, use a 1/4" drive swivel 10mm socket, not a separate socket, I use thick super glue on the clean pan, install gasket, drop bolts from top to align holes, spray some accelerator to lock up the gasket,(like 2 seconds),(you can get the thick CA glue and accelerator at any good hobby shop) Gasket stays where put(make sure your oil pan does not have raised holes from over-tightening, if it does hit the high spots with a ball peen hammer, put nothing on gasket, You will be able to maneuver pan with gasket over Pick-up easily, bolt it up, center out X pattern. new O's on dipstick tube, good to go.
