    If you have the bolts out, just keep at it. You have to break the sealant loose. use a rubber mallet and keep working the pry tabs. If its still stubborn, carefully add some heat. It'll come.

    Keep working on the pry tabs, never had one break yet.

    I have broken one!

    But I also managed to get the pump apart.

    Heat is a good tool. Also, you can use some brass wedges. Get them in there pretty tight. Leave it alone in the sun for an hour. Come back and take it apart.
