Damn water pump

So today i started on replacing my water pump. Drained the cooling system and took the drive belt off and that with no worries but the pump is jammed in there good. the jack bolts aren't doing it either. Im hoping its just the o-ring making things difficult and not any corrosion. gonna try and do some serious prying and yanking tomorrow without damaging the timing case. If anyone's got any ideas on how to loosen things up that would be great. Its on an M42 btw.

Thanks guys,
