Default Need transmission removal help ASAP

I'm pulling my transmission out of my 88 turbo supra, i undid all the bolts and took off the driveshaft, i took off the rear support and the speedo cable is out. Plus every other thing. I put a screw driver in and pried to the two peices (transmission to flywheel assembly case) and it came out 3/4 of an inch easy. But now it's stuck, i have no idea why it's stuck but it's stuck. The transmission will roll a few degress both ways, it'll move up and down a bit but no matter what i try i can't seperate them. I've stuck two crow bars in and pried like crazy with my friend wiggling the jack and nothing. I've tried supporting it with one jack, two jacks, one jack in the rear, a jack in the front pulling and wiggling it will not come out. I need help guys. WTF do i do!

uninstall the c clip that holds the trow out bearing- fork...thats what is holding you up.... you will most likely have to tur tha tranny 90 degrees or upside down in order for it to come out of the hump..

is this a 5 speed or an auto? Cause chances are you are binding on the input shaft, or you havent disconnected everything. Have you disconnected the torque converter from the fly wheel? If you have a 5 speed have you disconnected the slave cylinder, and the throw out bearing fork? Im assuming you have an auto though. Make sure that you have all the bolts for the torque converter free. And make sure u use a trans jack too. and keep the angle right. Make sure your exhaust is out of the way, and there are no hangers that the tranny can hit on either. Without being there though im only taking shots in the dark.

Ps never pry against your flywheel or your going to break it. If you are going to pry do it against the block!!! And please tell me you took the starter out too.
