Crazywolf there is no tourque convertor in a truck with a manual transmission fairly sure there is a flywheel. (I believe in automatic's what i think of as the flywheel is actually as you said the flexplate and they are not the same thing but one is used in standards and the other in automatics)
Now Dodgerman, Lots of times it is a bear to get the 2 to split apart, after many motor swaps and many clutch jobs I try very hard if there is room to pull the motor straight forward until the motor and tranny seperate before lifting at all, drop it back down and try that everything has to be straight for it to want to come apart. You might like Jonyjaws said have to use a jack under the trans to accomplish this but in anycase you should have one under the trans to hold the front of it up. also I believe thier should be an inspection cover under the clutch.. you did take that off right? should be a few bolts
