Ram housing removal

After the good advice yesterday I'm to the point of removing the ram housing (as part of replacing my injectors.

It is truly stuck on. I found a suggestion to hit it with a dead low, which I've been trying for over an hour. I also cannot access the corners to pry because of clearance around the fuel rail.

Any other tricks to get this thing off?

Thanks

The plenum ? Are you certain you have all the bolts out ? Never had to hit one more than a couple times with a rubber mallet.

Yes the bolts are out. The plenum cover came off after a few hits with the dead blow. But the ram housing beneath it is a different story. It seems like the last person in used a black silicone to re-seal it. The stuff is like concrete now.

Well, found a solution that worked really well. Took a piece of 2x2 oak, and cut a 4" long section. Resting it on the block between injectors 1 and 2, used it as a leverage point for my pry bar. Came off no problem.
