2005 v6 automatic engine removal

I have a 2005 v6 coupe with an automatic. Oil pump broke and took out the engine. I purchased an engine out of a 2006 Mustang for replacement. Since the transmission is sealed, was just going to separate the engine and trans. I worked for roughly 4 hours trying to get them apart. I'm dumbfounded!!! Since I had the engine harness still attached for the manual transmission car, it was used as the guide for locating and removing the automatic harness. Can't get them apart - Help please. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Do you have a Haynes manual? That might help.

Any Suggestions?

Yes, I have a chilton's manual, it says remove the bolts attaching the engine and the transmission. I have made a discovery though, the 5 speed has 6 bolts holding them together and the automatic has 7 bolts holding the transmission. Sunday after posting my desperate message, I found the 7th bolt. I removed it today after finding another wiring harness bolt also. My son was in charge of removing all the bolts attached to the back of the engine. It is apparent he missed a few, this wasn't his first rodeo either. He helped swapping out the 2.9 in my 1988 Ranger SC also. Maybe I should have been more proactive in unbolting the 4.0 from the transmission. I still can't figure out why there is an extra bolt with the automatic though. The new 4.0 should be in after Thanksgiving. Also if you are pulling a 4.0 remove the motor mounts from the engine before separating the engine from the transmission.

Glad you figured out the bolt. Is the bell housing the same for both transmissions or does it actually differ between the two? Does the extra bolt just have an empty hole in the manual?

The Bell Housings are different, and I was still wrong on the number of bolts holding them together. I didn't look closely at the plate that goes between them until Thursday morning and there are 9 bolts connecting the automatic to the engine. Tuesday night it was already dark and I was ready to be done for the day.
