Help with Engine/Trans Separation
Hi guys,

I have the engine and trans (351C/C6) out of car and trying to separate but they just won't come apart. All the bellhousing bolts are out and it is separated about an inch from the engine but won't go any further.

Is there some trick I am missing or are thereother bolts that have to come off? Torque convertor?

Thanks guys
You must remove the 4 nuts that secure the torque converter to the flexplate.
