Removing timing chain cover for the first time , I have all the bolts out and crankshaft pulley off ,I can pry away the top of the cover but it feels like its binding on something. Any hints , I don't see anything that should be hold it on except the gasket material. Can it be that stubborn ?

I know that you said that you have removed all the bolts, by chance did you forget to remove the front oil pan bolts that go into the front cover?

First time doing this and I am having a tough time believing that I can get the timing chain cover on and aligned without having it leak , plus I got I think have the wrong crankshaft seal ,my old one didn't have the flange .
