removing torque converter

Hi guys! I acquired a used TH350 from a friend. Tried removing the rusted torque converter and it wouldn't go off the shaft! It moves back and forth 1/8 in. and that's it. I rebuilt a TH350 once and don't remember such pain taking the converter off.

Any advice? Is it possible something inside the converter collapsed preventing its removal?

Thanks!

Even if the converter blades locked, they are still sitting straight on 2 splines and a pump. Should slide straight out.

It probably just rested itself in a groove on the pump.

If you don't plan on re-using it, use a crowbar. Just put some wood on the bell so you don't damage it in the process.
