R75/5 universal joint

So I decided I need to grease the splines. So I took a 27mm socket and ground it down to use on the swing arm nuts. I've got the final drive loose. I pulled back the rubber boot around the u-joint and took out the 4 bolts that attach it to the transmission, but I can't get the u-joint loose. Is there anything else holding it? I though once I took the 4 10mm bolts out that it would be loose, but it's not moving. The final slid back but the u-joint did not move. Any tips on getting it loose?

Hit it with a rubber mallet or a block of wood. A large screwdriver may be wedged into the universal and wiggled or used to pry. It'll come loose with a little effort.
