You are doing this work yourself? You have the hoist attached to the engine? Usually, people doing repairs at this level of difficulty do not have to ask questions like this. My thoughts: either you have missed something, or, you are not lifting correctly- the engine has to slide out in a forward direction, it will do no good to put the clutch and input shaft in a bind by trying to lift UP, initially- the radiator must be out and you must have room in front of the engine to slide it out- having said that, the other way to take the engine out is to take the engine and tranny out together, tilting them upward with the hood off- on some cars this is easier, and easier to separate the two when they are down on the ground- it depends on the car, the room, and the ease of diconnecting the driveshaft and tranny mounts- automatics are usually done like this- maybe on that Chevy they even have to be dropped out the bottom-
