If you bring the opposite end out first and then angle the starter motor, you should be able to get it past the drive shaft/differential. I'm not there to know what all was tried, so please bear with me. Can it go out through the front or is the exhaust in the way? I don't ever recall having trouble.
Worst case, you may have to support the engine and unbolt the left motor mount and slightly lift that side of the engine, but I do not remember ever doing that.
Let me know.
