Default stuck motor

Sure is, I think.

I am pulling the motor on my 02 outback ( head gaskets, rear main), I am pretty sure I have all the nuts and bolts out of the trans. 4 Per side? Yeah, the starter is out as well, torque converter bolts too.
Its like its glued to the bell housing, kinda getting me mad. I don't want to go hammering on this thing but she is not budging. Makes me think I left a bolt but I checked a few times. I think its rusted to the dowels. I am really afraid of even coming within 10 feet of the car with a hammer or pry bar , not only that there doesn't seem to be any place to pry. Any advice would be appreciated thanks.


I was just moving right along and now

Once again after a quick search of this site I have found my answers, thanks.

And yeah, I never had a motor stick like this, maybe a v8 but I don't get as scared beating on them. Its just this little motor looks like I could bust it up real quick.

As you probably already know, if the motor and tranny have never been apart, they dont like to be. If you havent already, put a light coat of antiseize on the bellhousing before reassembly.

As much as you are NOT supposed to... I have driven chisels into the joint to break the crap free. The single auto car I have done, I drove two chisels in on either side. Just didnt want to come free. I had keep driving chisels down and wiggling till it got off the dowels.

usually my monster prybar on the crossmember to the back of the heads does it... be careful driving things between them... and if you do, aim for the preset studs on the sides of the tranny.

Default Thanks for the pep talk

I usually think a little before I reach for those tools ( big hammers and prybars). It comes from many years of not thinking before reaching for those tools. I cracked a bell housing on a turbo 400 just by looking at it wrong once. I swear I barely touched it.

Well my humor isn't all that great but I would just like to thank evrybody on the site for the help. I have pulled the motor on my 02 outback and have a few more questions. I will start another thread. thanks

Oh, btw: yes, hammer and chisel is what it took and it came right out. Yes, I hammered around the areas where there was good support.

Its just that I haven't done this kind of work in about tens years and am being hesitant, its coming back though...slowly.
