mine is an f series, so i'm not sure how much room u'd have in a van... but i unbolted my engine mounts, put a 2x4 from a floor jack to the harmonic balance and jacked her up. Just be very careful as u push up the jack... keep an eye on all your hoses and you fan.
You'll have to remove the air filter... that gave me plenty of room to jack it up and drop the oil pan.

Actually this is a NO NO you can bend the crank or damage the harmonic balancer mounting.

Anyone wishing the proceedure on the correct way can PM me an email addy and I will forward the information.
