Intake manifold removal

Having a bear of a time getting my manifold off. I have a jack and pipe across the motor and I am sure I could lift the motor if it was not bolted down. I tried driving thin putty knife between flanges and using a long pry bar on exposed edges. No luck. Maybe if I leave the jack on overnight it will break free. You can see the 2inch as tubing bending.

dead blow hammer with some good hits. if oy want to continue to try to remove it by lifting, pull from one end/corner and once you break the seal, it should peal up easier.

That worked. Should have thought of that myself. Thanks
