I am having trouble removing the primary cover on my 1974 Roadster. It is possible that the outer primary cover has never been off the bike in 46 years. The three inspection port covers have been removed and I've tried using my fingers in the inspection ports to rock or break the outer cover free with no luck. I really don't want to put anything as a lever in the slot between the outer and inner primary covers. I'm considering a rubber mallet and/or heat but wondered if anybody has any other hints or methods they might have used to break the outer primary cover free before I go with heat and BFI (brute force and ignorance) methods. Thanks.
