Shaft is just hung in the clutch drive disc. It should come loose with you prying on equal sides and rocking the two separating parts. You do have all the bell housing bolts out and have some clearance on the housing?

the drive shaft does not have to come loose?

4WD shaft to front axle? May have to be released on one end!

I see question is still open, did you release the front drive shaft and slip the transmission back?
