Transmission problem
1998 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual NA miles

I have a EVO VI JDM engine that I am using in an off-road application. The engine is not in a car. I want to remove the transmission, clutch housing, and transaxle assemblies, however, after removing all bolts, nothing will separate. The car manuals are useless, giving advice like "put a jack under the transmssion and remove it from the car". I cannot separate the cases at all, it's as if they are one single unit, which of course, they are not. What am I missing? It's a good transmission and I don't want to destroy it getting it off the engine.

Do you
have the same problem?

Naturally the first question is going to be, do you have "all" the bell housing bolts out? There should be 4 in from the bell housing side and 2 from the engine side.
If that's all OK, there should be 2 aligning dowels that come from the block into the bell housing. You may or maynot see them from the trans side. With a large drift pin or punch, give the heads of these dowel pins a good rap. This should give you enough of a gap to get a screwdriver in between and "wobble" them apart.
