The block won't split for me :( I found pics and I have gotten all of the block halve bolts, and I have removed the pistons. What's going on??? Just a stubborn block???

 

I know you say you got all of them, but did you get the 12mm under the rear main seal and the 10mm in the oil pan area?

i hate to repeat but make sure you didn't miss one bolt, it's so common to think you got them all then find out you didn't.

 

if i can't get a block to separate on easier terms i use a 2x4 against some part of the block and wail on it with a hammer. that's worked every time so far.

 

tie one end down securely then use a come along or winch on the other side, that should do it. LOL

How many bolts did you remove? Should be 17. Count them to make sure you got them all.

Are ANY parts still attached to the block? Oil pump? baffle plate? Anything?
