How to remove top shifter housing, hard silicone

I'm installing the easy to install slick shift for my LT77 and cannot get the top shifter housing unit off. The silicone will not let go. I've hammered and chiseled. I can't get a razor blade in between. Can I use RTV silicone dissolver? Anyone else had this situation?

cant say it will work on silicone but have to think it will. Google a product called "antibond".
It breaks a 3m 5200 bond which is the strongest adhesive I've dealt with.

After stepping away for a couple hours to make breakfast, all it took was a couple taps with a chisel and hammer and it came right off. Figures. Onward!
