My first diesel engine pull... 05 3500 lly. Have all the bolts out of bell housing (9) and even pulled the 3 big ones up top but I think there for adapter plate. The engine and trans don't want to separate. Is it just stuck on the dowels? Do I need to get more aggressive or am I missing something?

Sounds like its just stuck on the dowels you might need to get more aggressive with it. Remember these things are like twice the weight then a gassers so it will take more force to get them out. Did you take the front clip off to take out the motor and do you have a strong enough cherry pickers to hold the motor weight?

This may sound dumb but did you take the 6 bolts out that hold the torque converter to the flexplate? the motor and trans stick together but they shouldnt be that bad.
