Easier to yank the motor. If not, jack it up as high as you can, drop the pan onto the crossmember, and you'll be able to reach the oil pump bolts. After that's taken apart you'll be able to slide the pan out. Have fun getting it back in though...

Your other option is to drop the crossmember. Like I said, yanking the motor is easier

nah its easy. the pickup is held to the pump with 2 bolts, and its got 1 bolt holding it to the #3 main cap. remove those 3 bolts, the pickup will drop into the pan, and you can slide it right out. easy.
