What can you replace on a T engine while it is still in the car?

I once many moons ago, spent the day on my back, in the street, replacing the crankshaft bearings and oil pump on a 78 Ford LTD Wagon. Getting the oil pan off was a nightmare. Had to unbolt the engine jack it up to get the pan to clear.
I said I would never do that again but I did on a 76 Granada.

Never say Never.

Mike

Head, rods, pistons, center and rear main cap, timing gear, cam shaft, lifters, valves and springs, front upper crank seal, hogs head, bands, starter, generator, fan, timer, intake and exhaust manifolds, carb, pulley, fan belt. Some items will mean the radiator has to be pulled.

I guess I should have asked what can't you replace on an engine while it is in the car?

Crankshaft

You can not replace the crankshaft, poured crankshaft block bearings, flywheel, engine/transmission pan and the rear camshaft bearing is questionable.
