I have everthing unhooked and unbolted but the exhaust. The dam bolts are rusted solid in the manifold. Has anyone been able to do it without removing the exhaust or have any ideas on how to get the bolts out, I tried a torch on one but it did not loosen up and makes me very nervous with all the old oil grunge build up on the side of the block. Thanks for any help.

Probably the best way would be with an impact wrench and a 6 point socket. Go EASY with it,acouple of blows in reverse,a couple forward and on. That will hopefully loosen things up. Be sure to let it soak in penetrating oil first.

Can you just pull the trans,without the bellhousing?

The trans and bell housing are one piece unit, I haven't tried soaking it in penetrating oil yet.
