four wheel drive or two wheel drive ?? I am told on a 2wd the pan comes right off. On a 4wd either removing the front axle or undoing the motor mounts and raising the engine will work. If you are just doing the pump it is probably easier to jack the engine up. Hope you didn't do to much damage to the bearings. You should have primed the oil pump before even attempting to start a new engine in the first place.
