    I have a JD 200C LC that has problems. Can you get the oil pan off without pulling the engine? I'm wanting to do an inframe on it.

    The answer of course is no, you have to lift the engine...to find out that you need to pull the engine and rebuild it.

    As I recall the only excavator engine I've ever been able to pull the pan on in the frame was a Link-Belt with a Cummins engine.
