Need a little (a lot of) advice. '70 Deville, pulling the engine.
Pulling the engine only, leaving the transmission in place. Exhaust pipes are disconnected from the manifolds, 6 bell housing bolts are out, 3 torque converter to flex plate bolts are out. Engine is off the front mounts. Engine and trans appear to be stuck together. Manual says to pry the engine forward. Where/how do you pry? I'm using the factory lift points (the brackets on the intake). Everything is off the engine.
Any suggestions on what the issue is?
How the heck to I get it out (separated from the trans) and what am I doing wrong?
It's stuck on the locating pins between the trans bellhousing and the block. After you disconnected the converter, did you shove it back into the trans? Get the engine hoist hooked up, put a little upward pressure on the engine, just up off the mounts. Get underneath, and jam a bar in between the flex plate and the converter. Give engine a shove to the front. Engine should pop free. Have a floor jack under the trans with a block of wood under the pan when you do this. It will all make sense.
Of course, follow all safety, please. Stands, eyes, fingers, etc, etc.
Look on the right side, above the red engine stand. That dowel pin locates the trans, and that's why your engine isn't rising up.
