Default 92 ssei engine removal

Hey guys,

Im in the middle of removing an engine from a 92 ssei, i removed the starter, torque converter bolts, the 4 bell housing bolts, and the passenger engine to chassis mount.
The tranny is supported, i got the cherry picker hooked up but it keeps lifting the tranny as well when i try to lift the engine... Are there more bolts holding on? I've looked but havent found any...
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Have you actually split the trans/engine yet? There are locating pins between the engine and transmission to keep them lined up correctly.

Same flange as the bolts. You don't pull the pins, but you might have to pry the trans to break the pins free.

Yes, you need to work a pry bar in between the engine and transmission to split them in half. Usually its corrosion on the pins that hold them together.

I can't even find a remotely close video on youtube that would show it.

There are 5 bolts not 4. The bolt between the block and transmission bolts opposite of the other 4 bolts meaning it screws into the transmission case. You need about a 3 foot extension to get to it snaking it between the oil filter housing and along the back side of the block.
