Oil Pan Removal question

Hey guys I'm re-sealing my oil pan to fix a leak and can't get the pan to come off. I've removed all the bolts including the trans\engine brace, exhaust down pipe, cross member. I can't find a good place to wedge it without damaging the pan. Shouldn't this think just drop right off? Anybody got any ideas?

So... you've discovered hondabond.

Make sure all the bolts are out, and start hitting it with a rubber mallet. If you hit like a girl, it won't come off. Don't use a screwdriver or prybar as you can damage the "mating surface"

there is a little tab you can pry at near the crank pulley. Those things are REALLY stuck on there from the factory

razor blades. doesnt have to be perfect, but get it as clean as possible. Liquid gaskets allow for some wiggle room when it comes to surface prep

I always used a wiz wheel. You could probably get away with a scotch brite pad.

I replaced my oil pan just the other week at work. I used a small pry bar on the lip near the crank pulley. Popped right off, with a bit of effort. That ultra flange shit is pretty sticky.
