    I feel like a idiot, but i still can't get it.

    Ok.. Before everyone makes fun of me, I really am not a stupid person, but i am really having a problem getting my trans out. I have a 98z with a a4 trans in it. I am converting it to a m6 among other things, but the automatic will not let go of the engine. Yes, I have removed all the bell housing bolts, including the pain in the ass top one, and i have disconnected all lines and plugs. The converter is unbolted, and the damn thing will not move. I have swapped trannys out of my old 98 2 or three times, but this one will not move. Has anyone heard of or had this problem.. Is there something i am forgetting? ???

    To keep up to date, i finally got the tranny loose from the motor. BUT The problem was that the allignment pins corroded to the block and the tranny. Luckily the tranny was the part that broke. The bell housing on it actually broke around the drivers side pin. the other pin came out of the block. Once the tranny came out, i was able to heat up the pieces of bellhousing stuck to the block with a hand held propane torch and chisel them off. The block looks ok, but i will be machining some new pins out of stainless steel so this will never happen again.
