Do you have the trans supported? You need to support the front of the trans to keep it straight with wherever you have the engine lifted to, otherwise the input shaft will bind on the clutch disc/pilot bushing, not to mention that it's bad for the input shaft. If you alleviate the binding, it should slide right out.
