Question Getting the 2.5 block apart

ok, all that is left to my block is the super liquid gasket between the two block halves. Anyone know what tool to use to pry these 2 apart or any specific technique to use? Thanks,
-Eric

ahh..I would say, don't pry it with a small flat head. Try using something thin, wide and strong to pry it open with. Or if you want to bang on it, use a brass or wooden hammer. I guess it depend on what exactly the case looks like, and where there are areas on the case you could smack with a hammer that would help loosen the glue stuff. Good luck!!

Are you sure it is ready to come apart? There are 6 hidden case-bolts in the water jacket that are often overlooked.

At the dealership they have some brackets that bolt to the motor-mount hole on the block, these are what you should hit with a hammer to seperate the halves. If you hit on the aluminum block with even a soft-face hammer you risk deforming the aluminum.

yah, I got the water jacket bolts....a real bitch to get at too, 12 point 12mm on a 3/8" extension....kinda not standard. I broke one extension off in the jacket and had to buy a even more heavy duty one. I have avoided doing anything to the block that risks deforming the aluminum, but I'll pop down to the dealership and see what the deal is on those parts. Thanks alot.
