Default Borg Warner Torque Tube Stuck

Having no luck detaching old BW overdrive rear torque tube from banjo. All bolts are out but there is no movement of the tube, even with wood block and hammer. I notice there are extra holes in the BW rear torque tube flange, and I am wondering if I need to run some bolts into those holes to pry the flange loose. Feels like the drive shaft might be integral to the tube in some way, unlike stock Modal A setup. Picture attached.

Yes. Unfortunately I could not find information about the connection of the rear torque tube to the banjo....

Problem solved. Hydraulic jack and wood block broke it loose. Strange, large hammer and wood block would not budge it. Surprised to see chains inside BW overdrive. Really?
