Cant separate engine from trans

Hi. I'm pulling the engine on my 'new' 1970 911T. I've got everything disconnected, and the engine dropped down a foot or so. It separates about half an inch, then sticks. No ammount of pulling or tugging seems to get it to let go.

I think the half an inch is the clutch moving, but the shaft seems to be jammed.

What do I have to do to get them apart?

I have to drop the trans anyway, so I may just bolt them back together and pull them both out, then deal with separating them out of the car.

Thanks,
Jeff

it's a pain to do engine only on 70 and 71, because you have to pull the fork past the throwout bearing and turn the bearing 90 to get it out of the clutches of the fork. hard to do in the car thru a small hole on top of the bellhousing.

Just bolt it back together and drop the transmission and the engine. On my first engine drop I removed the engine and the transmission because in many ways it's easier. Its also easier to join them together out of the car.

That's what I did, it was actually easier doing both, with one jack under the trans and one under the engine.

Thanks for the help!
