They can also just be stubborn after being bolted together for so long. Sometimes when pulling a motor I've had to tap the seam between the block and bell housing with a mallet and then gently wiggle it a bit to get them to separate.

Edit: Gentle prying may also work, but I don't like putting force on the input shaft.
