Explain the issue. Unbolt everything, take out radiator and grill, jerk it.

Here's a picture of the back of the engine, have you taken out all the bolts?

I would just set the truck on fire if I were you. Much easier that way.

Check the steel plate bolted to the bottom of the transmission bell housing.

Don't forget to take the four nuts off of your torque converter to flywheel. They're behind the dust cover on the bottom side where tranny meets the motor.

Out of curiosity, did you remove the converter bolts? I realize its not a necessity, just one more thing giving resistance. I've had to use a stiff painters tool in the past to get the separation process started.

Just FYI, the grille and radiator don't have to come off, but it does make it a bit easier.

it only attaches to the exhaust, transmission and the frame. if you have those disconnected then you're good.

trans to engine bolts (6 bolts)
torque converter to flywheel (4 nuts)
exhaust manifold to the y-pipe (2 nuts per side)
engine mount (1 nut and 2 bolts per side) you can pull the engine with just the nut removed and the mounts still attached to the block.

this is the engine mount. the stud sticking up goes into the frame and is held on with a big nut. then the mounts bolt to the block with 2 bolts per mount.

I didn't realize I had 6 bolts from trans to engine. That could be my problem. The trans is coming up with the engine. I think that's my problem

I've got everything everyone posted to disconnect disconnected. The only thing left is the bolts from trans to engine. I'll give it another look tonight. Thanks forall the help. And thanks for not having to deal with any assholes. Slowly starting to figure this stuff out

You bet, make sure to finish this thread when you do find what's holding her in there so that others can learn too.
