    This damn thing has such a shallow head I can't keep anything on it....the only thing I can think to do is remove the exhaust manifold so I can crank on it at perfect angle

    Look for 'bolt extractor' sockets.

    I've used them at our shop years ago, they seem to work more often than not.

    Oh what i did for that one is get a bunch of extensions on it going straight back and impact it out, in my case there was more room further back

    Your my hero driller!!!....I bought a set of Craftsman extractor sockets and got it out in 30 seconds. That thing had a hell of a grip on it. Looks like they had 4 washers on it because it was too long

    I can't seem to get the transmission separated from engine. I checked and double checked that all the bolts were out. Is there a trick to this? I tried wiggling it with the jack up high and down lower bit the whole engine moves with it

    It needs to come straight back a littleand you need to pry with a long screwdriver or crowbar at where they meet. Just double checking but you remembered the cooling lines and linkage rightM
