I'm trying to pull the engine out of my 95 Deville 4.9, I've unbolted the top left, and bottom right motor mounts, the transfer case, the 4 bolts on the back of the engine that hold the axle to it, and also unbolted the flywheel from the torque converter. My problem is that when I try to lift the engine, first the car lifts up, then the engine, AND transmission lift up. I don't want to remove the transmission I know it's easier but I just don't want to do it. Can anybody give me any ideas as to what I'm missing?

Yes, but I know for a fact that it's also possible to remove at least the engine from the top

You have to separate the engine from the transmission about an inch or better to get the 2 dowel pins out of their prospective holes as well as the torque converter center nub out of the flexplate.

Ah I just noticed this on my own, but I was wondering how many bolts do you have to remove from the flywheel? I removed three and there are three holes on the replacement engine that match those bolts, but there are three bigger holes, & I noticed that when I move the engine away from the transmission, the flywheel seems to be pulled, the torque converter spins free of the flywheel though. 2015-04-21 19.15.23.jpg
