How hard should it be to separate the engine from the trans?

84 4 cylinder engine mated to a 5 speed Isuzu and presently out of the car. Removed the six bolts holding the trans to the engine. Even removed all the inspection cover bolts too, but left the starter intact. The whole assembly is supported by an engine hoist. Whacked the transaxle with a rubber mallet, used a pry bar a bit in one spot that looks like it was meant for prying. Sprayed PB Blaster in and around the bolt holes cause some of the studs/bolts looked corroded.

Nothing budges. What am I missing?

Well, on the bolt just above the starter and on the other side the second one down from the top, there is a sleeve that goes into the transmission and engine, like a pin with a hole in it for the bolt to go through. That will hold it together until you pry it apart. Larry

He says he took out six, so they are all removed I would say. The little split sleeves can hold the parts really tight, so I think he just needs to pull a little harder ont he pry bar. Larry

Thank you both for the quick replies. I did remove all the bolts, including the one going the opposite direction. Maybe the sleeve and corrosion around it is holding it. I'll give it a little more muscle tonight and update. Thanks.

You might have a little more success if you support the tranny with a floor jack.
The weight of the tranny could be imparting a great deal of friction on the sleeves and input shaft.

Thank you for all your help. It was indeed the sleeves that were holding it together. It took a significant amount of penetrating oil, plus beating and prying (while trying not to break anything) for it to come loose.

Hopefully I don't do a multiple post again.
