Issues removing transfer case

I sure someone has asked this before, but I cannot seem to get the transfer case to separate from the transmission. I have disconnected everything. Electrical connections, vent hose, shift linkage, both drive shafts, and all six nuts. Yet the damned thing will not come free. it's an np 242 i'm trying to remove because the rear of the case is cracked. I've tried pry bars, and even a come along, nothing is breaking this thing free. Any advice would be helpful, before i completely destroy something.

I remember reading something about a dowel (locator) pin that get welded together over time due to galvanic corrosion. I think I read it in the transfer case swap thread in the FAQ section. Hope this is useful.

Hmm.... That's strange, both of mine started moving once I got the six nuts loose. Are you sure you got the top nut (I know you said you did), that is the only thing that I can thing of. And, do you have it set up so that you can drop the transmission a little?

We pulled and hauled at one for 30 mins before realising we had a bolt still done up. Double check them again to be sure. We even had day light coming through one bit lol

alright, finaly got it out, turned out it was the top passenger side stud. The stud was so corroded it actually had about a quarter inch of build up on it and that prevented it from sliding out. All it took was four hours and a bunch of varying size flat tip screwdrivers and wiggling the thing from side to side until it fell out. Now i got it apart and that thing is pretty busted up from being run dry. so now it's on to the rebuild. Once again thank you all for the help.
