Default crankcase cover removal

I have my fe290 engine up on my workbench and stripped down. Anybody have any tips for getting the side cover/crankcase off? I don't want to pry on the aluminum or bang away at it too much. It's not budging and there doesn't seem to be a point to pry from. need some help here. Thanks

Copied from a manual:

Crankcase Cover
Disassembly
• Drain the engine oil into an appropriate container.
• Loosen the crankcase cover retaining bolts in the reverse sequence
of the tightening sequence given on the next page. Using a hammer
or a plastic mallet, gently tap on the crankcase cover at the area
where the cover is fastened to the engine, and remove the crankcase
cover.

yeah, I've been tapping but it won't come. I don't want to pry so I guess I'll keep at it. If anyone has any useful tricks up their sleeve please share

I got the cover off, lots of tapping around the perimeter. Does anyone have the torque numbers for the perimeter bolts on the crankcase? I don't want to over torque and crush the gasket. also, what have you guys used on the new gasket, RTV etc? does the fsm recommend anything? Thanks guys

130 in-lbs in sequence 1-8, then again, retighten to 250 in-lbs in sequence 1-8.

My manual doesn't say anything about using gasket sealer,
and I haven't had a crankcase open to know what type of gasket it is...
You might want to hold off and see if anyone else chimes in on on the sealer!

i have done a few of these now and i have never used anything on the gasket and have not had any problems with leakage. i also made sure to replace the crankshaft seal. i am not sure if you have a plastic plug by the low oil sending unit but if you do make sure to put some rtv silicone around that so it doesn' leak. good luck!
