    Default block and tranny won't come apart

    what am i doing wrong here? the tranny is supported, i've got the hoist on the block (head and manifolds are already removed), and they come apart about half an inch, but then the flywheel tries to come out too. i can see the crankshaft there in the gap. do i have to put it in neutral? everything is definitely unbolted.

    we have tried pulling the block forward, aggressively, but it won't move past about 3/4"

    Reconnect the slave cylinder and push the clutch pedal in to give your self an INTERNAL push and seperation, using the clutch fork and throw out bearing as a wedge. I had the Same problem once, it would NOT seperate, until I pushed the clutch pedal in and it popped (seperated) apart easily.

    Good luck,
    Dave

    Does "everything" include removing the Torque Converter bolts?

    Or do you mean that you have the bolts out of the bell housing?

    FWIW,
