"I have had to use a long 2x2 between the cavitation plates attempting to pry them apart. Carefull to not put excess force on the cast cavitation plates, they will break. Most likely its corrosion around the studs. Tap around with a rubber mallet, pry it, tap again. Be patient it will come."

I noticed on mine that most of the corrosion holding it together seemed to be around the stainless studs. The stainless was fine but the aluminim in the holes was expanded from the corrosion.
Maybe some WD soaked overnight down next to the studs would help you...
