Has anyone Changed Big End Bearings out there without Pulling Motor? Can it be done?

possible yes, but it's a huge pain for getting to things. Proper torque is almost impossible. Pull the engine and clean everything up while you are at, you will be much happier in the end.

Odd you should ask as I was considering doing the same.
Done loads of Classics and Disco's in situ so dont see why not.
Although having the EAS software and cable will be a bonus with a P38 bearing replacement...

I do have the EAS software & cable. Do you use it to put the rover in high position to give you more room or do you set the high value a little higher for extra height?

Go into heights tab, that way you can just raise or lower front as required but only do it 2 clicks per side to raise/lower equally, a must is to use stands each time. I'd place them right in front if you have 6 ton or behind front wheels on chassis is using the smaller 3 ton stands.

Before going ahead I would check oil pressure 1st with a gauge, its a bugger to carry out as you need to remove alt and bracket, remove oil pressure switch and attach gauge, also a slightly low oil pressure can be caused by worn rocker shafts
