Separating the Engine and Transmission on a Subaru Impreza

I have a 2001 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS. It's got over 105K miles on it now. So I've been dismantling it to replace the clutch and the flywheel. My friend, Sasha, came by to help me pull the engine and transmission apart. We spent two nights, close to eight hours, tugging, wiggling, chiseling the engine and transmission. They won't budge. We thought maybe we forgot to unbolt something. But everything checked out.

We were finally jury-rigging a brake-piston-like device to push through the starter hole, when it occurred to us that the hydraulic clutch cylinder is basically doing the same thing. We remounted the cylinder onto the transmission, got into the driver seat, stepped on the clutch pedal. Voila! The transmission and engine separated like a charm. The clutch petal went all the way to the floor and wouldn't pop back until we manually pull it.

The next time you have a hard time pulling your engine and transmission apart, you might try this trick. But be careful, since the clutch system is probably under spring tension.
