Can't seem to pull the case off of my '01 NV5600 tranny,

Customer Question

Can't seem to pull the case off of my '01 NV5600 tranny, removed the three roll pins but the shift cup hangs up on the hole in the case and that's where I'm stuck.
JA: What is the model of your '01 Dodge?
Customer: 3500 4x4 dually
JA: Are you fixing your 3500 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: the 6 speed fights against itself when you put it in gear, found piles of brass in the oil and figured bearings and synchros are shot, but can't get the case past the shift cup.
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?
Customer: the tranny came with the truck in '01, it has 190,000 miles on it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds like there could be a mechanical failure preventing you from disassembling the transmission. In some cases the failure is too great to successfully disassemble a trans as it should come apart. I've seen these units lock up completely and prevent disassembly. In any event, in addition to a handful of special tools a 20 ton shop press is required to disassemble and reassemble this trans.

What actual symptoms was it having?
