Ok, all 9 bolts are out, Starter out, driveshaft off, shifter out, hydraulic line off, sitting on transmission jack and this trans will not come off.
I shook it, tapped it a few times with a hammer but not too hard, grabbed a pry bar and lightly tried that and won't budge.
Did I forget something???

Sometimes they're stuck on there pretty good. When I took mine off I left the hydraulic line on and pushed the clutch in a few times and that helped separate the two a little. Then I was able to gently pry it the rest of the way.
It can be difficult for it to separate along the dowel pins. Some powerblaster will help break loose any grime or rust. But eventually, using a pry between the engine and trans will be needed. had one like that earlier this year. Eventually separated it.
