Trying to remove transmission, does not want to disengage from engine
Several things cause that to happen.
1, The clutch spigot shaft might be stuck in the clutck plate or some dowels between motor and trans could be tight.
In that case you need to sharp wedges on 2 opposing sides of the transmission and wedge the gap wider with a little force and the things will come apart.
2. The damage to the clutching system might have been so bad it heated the parts and fused some of them.
Remove the clutch fork and use the hole to inspect the system. If the release bearing is stuck to pressure plate you should be able to separate box and motor now leaving bearing on pressure plate.
If the bearing is stuck to the plate and shaft try to separate them by inserting a long chisel in thr fork hole and try to separate the parts by chiseling with light taps and rotating the motor in the process.
If that fails then brute force is the answer. Hammer the chisel real hard. You are likely to damage some items though, but that will bw the way out.
