IIRC, there should be 6 bolts and 2 studs. Remove the starter if its a 5MT. Use a putty knife and a hammer and tap lightly all around the edge. This takes time, and it probably the worst part of pulling the motor. Once you get the putty knife all around, try using something slightly larger, like the end of a flathead screwdriver. Once you get that in, use a crowbar. Just keep working at it, take your time and be careful not to damage the edge too much (some small scratches/marks are expected). It'll come apart. Where are you located?
