Technically yes, but alot of effort. You would need to remove the transmission, then the sump, then the crankshaft. or remove the sump, then the cylinder head.

Thanks, I want to avoid pulling the engine and head. why does the head have to come off in conjunction w/ the sump? will the pistons come out from below? the crank can be removed from some fore/aft engines (ford, dodge, Chevy), but I've never heard of it on an engine mounted cross-way.

The Pistons are bolted to the crankshaft and it bolts to the transmission.
