On the 66 to 69 Generator shovel the generator is held on by two bolts on the cam cover side,(right) Once remove and wires disconected generator should come off as a unit.

No, it is two 7/16 bolts on the outside of the cover. Should be easy to see, the rest of the cover hardware are screws.

I'd use a stiff putty knife or scraper and gently tap in between the 2 surfaces.

you might soak the area down with gasket removing spray and let soak for an hour or so..
or bolt the generator housing back on the bearing housing, that should give you some thing more to grab a hold of..
