Red face 06 Engine Swap Question

We are in the process of swapping my 06 engine. We've followed all the instructions that we could find to just pull the engine out of the top. We seem to have everything disconnected, but can't get the engine and transmission completely seperated. It's about 1/2 inch gap now.... Is there any internal bolts that have to come out?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Take the inspection plate off of the bell housing (bottom front part of transmission), twist the motor around with a wrench on the crankshaft at the pulley (harmonic balancer), and remove the 4 flexplate bolts from the torque converter.

As a suggestion, paint one of the bolt holes along with the flexplate area with the bolt out, so you can line then up quickly during install. The bolt holes are staggered , so the flexplate only goes on one way.

Too many times you get to the fourth bolt to install, and it will not line up.

Thanks!

I figured it out after your first post. Got it apart, now just have to figure out how to maneuver the engine out of the hole.

Really appreciate the advice!
