Default another lim question

Well, I got started on my lim gasket replacement. Took out all the bolts on the top of the lim. And the damn thing won't budge. Are there any hidden bolts that I'm not seeing? Do I need to take the tensioner off? I know the coolant elbow needs to come off but that shouldn't keep the intake from coming off. It'* like I'm missing a bolt or two somewhere. I've even used a crow bar and it will not move. Any advice would be appreciated. P.*. Ready to open fire!!!

Do you already have the upper off? There are two bolts under it at the front right & rear left corners.
