Default Help, bellhousing to engine separation

I can't seem to separate the two.. Is there a trick to it that I apparently don't know?

I think two or more of the bolts holding it on come from the back side from inside the block, this according to the picture in the TM. I have never taken one off but that's what it looks like.

That seems crazy.
I can't get inside the block without it on a stand and i can't put it on a stand without taking off the bell housing!?!

There are two bolts that aren't accessible without removing the flywheel first.
You must separate the transmission from the bell housing to remove the engine from vehicle.

If you are mounting engine to an engine stand you bolt it to the transmission mounting holes of the bell housing.


Flywheel/ clutch assembly installed while on stand.

Welcome to the wonderful and frustrating world of M715 ownership!

Those tranny bolts are accessible through the tunnel cover, but you might as well pull the engine/gearbox as a unit-- it's not that difficult providing you're able to remove the core support for clearance. My front bumper is welded to the frame preventing said removal, which meant the engine hoist had to be raised almost vertical to clear the upper portion of the core support. It was terrifying.
