Look at your replacement transmission. straight thru holes are bolts on the trandmission side toward motor threaded are toward transmission. check each mounting hole and compare it to the trans in the car. if all are out it could be a dowel pin that is corroded. I have had to pry out transmissions off the dowel pins before. hopes this helps mike

Should not be hard to find. Simular to your engine, it will be on the transmission housing somewhere in reach.

I can,t get the sump off, I have removed all the bolts visible and can lift the front side a tiny bit, but seems to be still tight next to bell housing

It sounds as though you have missed a bolt/screw somewhere. That's easily done as they can become well hidden by road dirt and grime.

Use a blunt screwdriver to gently try and prise the sump free. Gaskets can stick and hold the sump tight against the housing. Don't force it, otherwise you'll end up damaging the sump.

If it still won't come free .. check for that missed bolt

Transmission will not come lose from motor, all bolts and the starter have been removed

Sometimes there is a hidden bolt, check very carefully. If not, sometimes it needs a little convincing. Carefully tap a wedge in between the engine and transmission. Do this equally on both sides to avoid cracking the bell housing or damaging any parts
