Default Can't seperate transmission from engine?

I am in the process of pulling a 5 speed transmission out of a 1998 2wd Ranger with a 3.0.
I have removed the starter, crossmember, driveline, clutch line, and bell housing/transmission bolts.
I can't seem to split the tranny from the engine. I've checked and checked agian to make sure that I didnt miss any bolts on the tranny (even the ones way up top) - all looks good.

Any recommendations?

Yeah, I missed a bolt on the passenger side - the one that threads in from the engine side.
Once I caught that, the rest was routine.

Thanks.
