My name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be helping you today. Most questions will involve troubleshooting, and usually take many posts back and forth.
I read your other open questions. I will try to get those closed out so there is no confusion.
How many bolts do you have out? Do you have the drive partway seperated, or is it still tight?
I am having trouble getting lower unit seperated from upper engine housing.
I understand that. I guess what im asking yet is have you already started the job, and getting hung up by something? Or have you not started the job at all yet?
I have remover all bolts that I can see,yet lower unit seperated very at front only.
There are 2 more things you have to get.
1. The torque tab on the back of the motor, just above the prop. You have to remove the torque tab, then look underneath where it was, there is 1 more hidden bolt up underneath of it. That one gets most folks.
2. If you haven't done so already, you have to disconnect the shift rod. Have a look at this picture below.
#58 is the shift rod. You have to disconnect it just under the carbs. It can be a bit of a pain to get to, especially if you don't have long reach needle nose pliers.
#68 is the torque tab I mentioned previosly. There is a bolt hidden underneath of it.
Let me know if you get it or if it still gives you problems.

Could yoy provide steps needed to remove the shift rod /
There is no real steps to it. You just have to locate it and pull the pin out of the top of it. The biggest problem is its hard to get to. Some folks will remove one of the bottom carbs. I have some 15 inch Snap On brand long reach needle nose pliers that I can get in there with, I don't know if you have the same. Sometimes its easier if you have a friend move the shifter as you watch the linkage so you can locate it.
This isn't the best picture, but it works. Here is what the top of the shift rod looks like with everything else stripped away. Its just a pin that goes through the eyelet of it.
