does anyone know where i can find the oil pan gasket? not the transmission pan gasket. and also, is it easy to remove the pan or does the crossmember get in the way?

Check out www.rockauto.com for parts. :)

I can't answer your other question, though, sorry.

I don't think rockauto has that, but someone on eBay is selling them. There are two "buy it now" listings; 1 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380158506146&crlp=1_263602_263622&ff4=263602_263622&viewitem=&guid=880d18661230a02652d2eca2ffe0c303&rvr_id=&ua=W8F%3F&itemid=380158506146) and 2 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190400703163&crlp=1_263602_263622&ff4=263602_263622&viewitem=&guid=880d18661230a02652d2eca2ffe0c303&rvr_id=&ua=W8F%3F&itemid=190400703163)

I'm not sure how it is with the 429, but a lot of Cadillacs are designed where you have to lift the engine a little to remove the oil pan (that's why mine is still leaking).

Remove bolts through engine mounts. Place a piece of 2x6 or x8, x10, whatever you have laying around (a hard cover text book would work nicely) on your floor jack pad. Jack up the engine carefully on the bottom of the pan sump. Only a few inches. Shove a short piece of 2x4 in between the engine/frame mounts and let the engine down. You should have enough room now.
