Transmission stuck to engine

Trying to pull the transmission off the engine. All the bolts are removed (10 I think?) and the cover plate is off.

I can pull the transmission back about 1/2" from the engine, then it won't go any further. Since the engine is already out of the car, I can't pull much harder on the transmission without dragging the engine along too. Have I missed something, or do they just get stuck sometimes?

Maybe I can just get my wife to pull the other way on the engine while I tug on the tranny. She'll love that. (not!)

The pilot bearing is very likely causing the problem as they sometimes become frozen. If you have a couple of large screw drivers you can very slowly use them as a lever arm to help seperate the two. Be sure to block these items good, as they are heavy and will cause you harm if gravity decides to do its thing. Be sure not to get too excited and work them apart slowly. Some patience now will save money and time in the long run. Kepp them low to the ground as mentioned above.

I ran into this same problem. My dad and I worked on this from both sides with two wonderbar type prybars. Once it was far enough that the transmission could spin on the spindle, a rubber hammer (anacanapana) was used to beat it apart the rest of the way.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
