Good Saturday to everyone

I’m having an issue actually separating the trans from the motor. Motor is about 1/2 inch off the frame in the front.

I’ve checked the bell housing bolts numbering times. 8 til total bolts are out. Ideas??

Progres update. I had to pry the motor and tranny from each other but I was able to get it out and had no connections inhibiting the process. Now to clean up the engine bay a bit and swap parts. Thanks again for the help so far.

Since Ive got the truck in pieces and access to everything should I do a tranny flush. The exhaust is out of the way so dropping the pan should be easy?

Ive read since I have a transmission cooler Ive read to replace the lines to get a complete flush but id rather not. Measure the fluid lost and replace once the motor is back in simple right?

How many miles are on it? Assuming it's over 100k, I would drain and refill with a new filter. Don't do a "flush". You can flush-out the cooler with fresh fluid, too. No need to replace the lines.

You might consider replacing the torque converter. Mine pooched at 165,000 taking the pump and transmission internals with it.

reason to avoid the flush on a higher milage trans, too much detergent at once.
you can add plenty of service life (depending how heavy the right foot is) by dropping pan and doing fluid/filter with each oil change, until you are getting a good color and cleaner looking filter.
once of the guys did a nice write up, jacking the trans tailshaft up to remove pan.

I'm watching your build, clean work and clean engine bay, it looks good.
