Umm, what 4.7 liter did cadillac make? I think u might be thinking 4.6 liter Northstar. If it ain't a Northstar, then u gotta post in the other engine forum, cuz this the Northstar Forum. Anyway, if it is a Northstar, then I beleive u have to drop the cradle I believe. Not 100%. Never did it so don't take my word for it.

Yeah, I don't believe the pan can be removed without dropping the engine.
