Oh it's real tight and an inside jaw puller is just about useless and the cover and seal are basically.flush with each other and you wouldn't know if the jaw is on the seal or cover. Start prying the seal flange all the way around while pulling

They rarely leak, the seal itself is on the inside, like the rear main. Dust shield is on the outside. The addition of dowel pins was to get the seal squared on the snout. I assume your block uses dowel pins. Also there is a spring on the inside of the seal, just like a rear main seal, to apply slight pressure. I have seen plenty of seals with the spring missing. You need to cobble together a lever type of pull. Lineman type of pliers to pull the flange away from the cover. Your not going to just pull straight toward the radiator with pliers. It need to be a lever system that doubles. Like a come along does. Nothing about it, is fun, but certainly doable.
