EndCap Stuck on tranny case

Hey all, I'm trying to take apart my 5 speed transmission from my '75 2002 and for some reason can't get the end cap off. I've taken all of the necessary bolts out and can separate it from the housing about an inch. I'm not sure where to press to pull the two apart, or what the deal is.

Any help will be much appreciated.

You're thinking about it backwards-

you need to remove your frontcap first.

Seriously, to take apart a Getrag transmission, first, remove the

bellhousing and front case.

So if you pull the cap off the input shaft, remove the clip and

coax the input shaft into the case, it'll start coming apart.

Perversely, taking apart an Italian transmission is perfectly logical...

Germans... hrummph...
