I have discovered shiny metal particles in the pleats of my oil filter after noticing a knocking sound under load between 2k and 3k rpms in my '68 Firebird 400 non ram air. My question is, can I drop the pan while the motor is still in the car??
Thanks in advance for your help, Mike

I think you can but you still have to lift the engine to get the pan off
And if you have metal in the oil more than likely it sounds like rod or main bearings and then you would have to pull the motor anyhow
