colbert01 - Make sure all of the bolts are removed. It sounds like the gasket is holding the cover on and you may need to try and CAREFULLY pry the timing cover in several locations to get it to loosen up, be patient and it will come off. Make sure the oil pan bolts that go into the cover are also removed, they will also prevent the cover from being removed.
