308 cam cover removal

Hey Guys, I am unable to remove the rear cam cover(the easy one). I have removed all the nuts. I have removed the vent hose under the distributor. The cam gear side will separate from the head, but not the other side. Looks like PO used silicone gasket material. What is the safest way to remove the cam cover?
Thanks in advance
Charles

Did you remove the vent cover, as well? If so, then some gentle persuasion with a rubber/ plastic mallet usually does the trick.

Thanks David, yes I removed the vent cover. I hit the cover with a rubber mallet.
I guess I can try hard plastic wedges and see if I can push the cover loose.
