    Yes, but...

    I have seen here (recommended read) where folks have rotated the engine upward and forward on the front mounts but at this point where you are, much easier to lift the engine out and work on it easier (and cleaner).

    I have everything you need to lift and repair here at my shop (37763). Can do it in a day's time easy. A hoist and a load spreader bar is all you need.

      As you stated, the rear main is OK. I'd replace it because it is so easy to get to but that is a moot point. It's not broken, don't fix it. I get that since that can be a project within itself.

      I will say this...there is one other often overlooked and rarely mentioned (potential) point of failure which is the rear casting plug on the block. It is right there in plain sight, easy access. While you have the engine apart, replace that plug if nothing else. New plug, new baseline for going forward.

      Summit Racing should have them.
