@pounder , Clint, If all oil pan bolts are out and pan is loose, you are probably getting hung up by the oil pump sump tube. The engine will have to be lifted a few inches to get clearance for oil pan to drop far enough to clear the oil sump tube. 1st link pdf download Instruction links/video below may help. Good luck.
