That pin that you pulled is attached to the clutch fork, which will still be engaged to the throwout bearing. If you have not lifted the clutch fork out of the throw-out bearing then that could cause some trouble. I did a clutch install last weekend and it was difficult for me to seperate the engine and the transmission, although I was just taking off the transmission and not pulling the engine. I had to use a pry bar in order to start to seperate them.

If it were easy then everyone would do it.:p

You are right, but the forks slide onto slots/hooks on the throw-out bearing. If you are able to move the clutch fork around and it has lots of play in every direction, it will no longer be an issue.

There are the two studs at the bottom and two guide pins above them on the each side of the back of the engine. They are probably keeping the engine from seperating. It will take some work and a whole lot of effort to unseat those guide pins. If you are able to get enough space between the engine and transmission for a pry bar or screw driver, try it. Make sure that you slowly and evenly. The last thing that you want to do is damage the splines on the power take off shaft on the transmission. If you don't fell comfortable with prying, thats fine, but you just have to do it enough to break loose the guide pins.

Do you have the car jacked up or is it on the ground? Is there any seperation between the engine and transmission? Why are you pulling the engine?

Good to hear........it's even more fun to put it back together. It will actually go faster since you know how it is assembled.
