you wouldn't be able to put the engine on the stand anyways if the tranny was attached because where the engine bolts to the stand is where the tranny bolts to the engine.
Make sure to remove all of the bolts, especially the ones on the flywheel cover.

If possible get a buddy to help you out to support the tranny, the third hand will make it easier.
