have you disconnected the through out bearing from the pressure plate?

I figured it out, I had one of my floor jacks supporting the tail end of transmission. After a buddy came over he told me to remove the jack From tail end and let it hang . Cause it was applying pressure and not letting the transmission separate . Once I removed the rear jack and only the one jack under bell housing and the transmission slid off . I was able to lower the jack and transmission. Truck is back on road, thanks for response .
