How do you get cover off top of T-5 trans?

I just took the transmission out of my 85 CJ7 and can't figure out how to get the cover off of the top of the transmission. Is there a special bolt that releases it or do I just pry it off?

You just take out the bolts in the cover and pry it off. There's nothing hiden holding it on. This is the one with the shifter attached to it right?

Im not sure exactly what you mean about the shifter, but it is not connected directly to the cover. It is connected behind the actaul transmission and i already hammered the retaning pin out and pushed the rod out but I cant get the top off.. i dont know if there is something holding it or it is just tight ( If you have never seen the trans this discription might sound real weird)...its the t-5
