Hi Ron from Matt at JA,
If you have all of the fasteners undone and the unit has seperated from the midsection, then it is the shift linkage up underneath the intake manifold that needs to be disconnected. You may have to take the lower engine cowlings of to get at it.
Let me know if that is the problem or if there is something else going on.
