1960 K10: remove oil pan w/o lifting engine?

I've got a raggedy '60 K10, which I use for plowing my driveway in central Vermont. Had a mishap: my cobbled-up plow frame came apart during the last plow, and a piece of it holed the engine oil pan. Can anyone say, is it possible to remove the oil pan, for repair or replacement, with the engine in place? I did a quick look, and am not sure. The job will have to wait for warm weather anyway!

It's a stock K10, with the original 235 six cylinder. The front motor mount, right under the waterpump, is what looks like it might prevent removal of the oil pan: all the other pan bolts look accessible.

How big is the hole, and where is it? It might be possible to fit a scab patch with Marine-Tex and pop rivets without pulling the pan, if you can get enough access to work on it, and get the surface of the pan clean and dry enough for the patch to stick. Marine-Tex is several orders of magnitude tougher than J-B weld and it's made to survive in some pretty hostile environments.
