you need to remove the wrist pins from the pistons or the pistons will bottom on the mains when the cases are split.

Search! It's been covered. you do need to remove wrist pins, and if it's not splitting nicely, look for any missed bolts. You can try a rubber mallet against the bellhousing to try to "help" it separate. It has to be done evenly, the locating dowels don't take too kindly to anything but straight removal.

And make sure to get all the bolts out. A few that may not be obvious at first are a couple in the back bell housing area, recessed in some ribbing, and a small bolt in the oil pan area.
