Take all the bolts out, take the driveshaft and cross member out, jack up on the front of the motor from the crank pulley to angle the tranny down in the back. It has dial pins in it so if it won't break loose use a crow bar or rubber hammer and bust it loose.

Yeah, it can be a pain in the *** to separate. I had my whole engine/trans out of the car and it was still a bitch to get apart. Those pins really hold it in there. You gotta work it.

There are 3 bolts on the starter, not 2, the top one is a PITA to get to and remove. If you're sure you have ALL of the bellhousing bolts out then thats the problem.

You have to have the right combo of extensions and maybe an impact swivel. The starter has to come out asap.
