Angry Separate generator from motor on Honda EP6500S

I need to take the generator from a Honda EP6500S to be rewound, but can't get it loose from the motor. I have removed all the long screws holding the generator to the flywheel housing: four external, two internal, and the long heavy center bolt. The gas tank is removed and the generator is loose from the rubber chassis mounts. I was assuming the generator would slide away from the flywheel, but it is stuck tight. Is this just a matter of knocking it loose with a hammer, or is there somewhere I could pry to get it loose?

The Honda engine has a tapered end crankshaft that plugs into a taper socket in generator shaft very similar to tie-rod ends on auto or Morse taper used on machine tools.
Replace the long bolt that goes through generator shaft. Leave it about 1/8" to 1/4" loose. Enlist a helper to pull the generator away from engine and tap the bolt head firmly with a hammer. One or two licks should do the trick.
Hope this helps.
