    had the same problem when I was takin the tranny off an LS motor.

    Of course the motor was dropped and even then it was tough, it took a wedge and a hammer to get it off, and it took for days (not literally).

    and make sure you have all the bolts on the dust cover unbolted too.


    starter and dust cover always kick my ass.


    i can never remember to unbolt them. usually by the time i've figured out that it's the starter, i take the bolts out and then just rip the fuckin' tranny off, and tear the shit outta the dust cover.....


    grr...

    Once I figured that the starter bolts go all the way through, it was easy. Once you have all the bolts out, get a mallet or dead blow hammer (dead blows are plastic hammers with either lead shot or sand inside, and do not bounce) and tap each side of the tranny until she becomes loose.

    yea ,y ls tranny was a bitch to get off too, I actuallty lifted the whole assembly up from the transmission side and it wouldnt come off. then i used a ball joint puller fork and pryed it off.
