    removing the t56

    im trying to remove the t56 from my lt1... none of this is in the car, it is on the floor in my garage. i have taken off all the bell housing bolts and all bolts on the outside that hold the LT1 and t56 together.

    i have been able to pry the t56 about 2 or so inches away from the lt1, it will twist a little and move around in all directions but i cant get the two to separate completely. I think something inside is still holding them together. i read somewhere theres a pin your supposed to remove... any ideas about that?

    i need help so i don't break anything trying something stupid.

    please go easy on my stupidity, this is my first engine / tranny project ever. thanks

    First off i have a LS1 T-56, but i know they are very similar so i hope this helps. There are 2 pins that are on the bellhousing that slide into the t56. It was a bitch for me prying this apart too. The pins on mine were a little rusty. First I would try removing the t56 from the bellhousing, then the bellhousing from the back of the LT1. It is easier to take it apart in 2 pieces than one. It takes quite a bit of force to pry them apart, so don't feel scared to put some effort into it.
