    look underneath the tranny ther should be 2 support legs than thread from the backside. If all the bolts are off, lightly work your way around with a rubber mallet.

    sometimes it is just a biatch to get those old parts apart from each other. Like the others said, those two support legs need to come off, there are also a couple of mainbolts that are screwed into the tranny, not to the engine. As I recall, they can be a pain to get at. Good luck

    Just work your way all around the tranny and make sure all the bolts are out, and just pull. This is a dumb question, but are all the tranny mounts disconnected? There is a rear mount that is a biatch, and it won't budge if it's connected. I'm assuming your tranny is sitting in your car still. also, make sure you disconnect the speedo cable, or vss, which ever you have.

    Was it that dust cover plate, the one that covers the bottom portion of the clutch/flywheel? That would have been my next guess, glad to see you got it off.

    Stupid 10 an 12 mm bolts, I had a problem with that dust cover once, now I just dont use those little bolts anymore, just the big ones that go thru the cover and those support legs. They are more than adequate.
