 i know.the only thing i can think of is finding a small sharp object like a cut down putty knife or similar.its going to take a lot of adult beverage and anglo saxon words.what about having your local windshield replacement guys try using the oscillating saw cut through most of the silicone. they are kinda vertical with a 90 degree cutter. it can get you down both sides and then maybe you can pry the front and back.it may mean you have to trash the existing pan and buy a replacement.

 Thanks, Frank. Hindsight is often 20/20. I know what to do in the future, I'm just not sure what to do in the present...

 i second the use of hylomar.i use a silicone (permatex) to first "glue the gasket to pan. one the gasket is mated to the pan i set it down on a flat surface like glass and leave it overnight. i find that this takes up any of the undulations of the pan.i then use hylomar between the adhered gasket and the motor.i use a a couple of all thread studs about 2" long each side of the motor as temporary guides to help bring the pan into the correct place.

Why I never use and hate Right Stuff.  When you do get the pan off it will be a bitch getting the surfaces clean.  Use Hylomar next time.
