I had the same issue. That little pin was holding the entire auto trans, plus my buddy and I pulling as hard as we could. I ended up taking 2 three foot socket extensions and placing them on each side of the starter, then used a small sledge hammer to hit both at the same time. The pin came right out.

It was a lotta' work, but well worth it, huh? In the process we also took advantage of installing a short shifter and well, a buncha' crap, ha. I hope you like it !
