Default Lower valve covers

Just wondering what if any tricks or tips there are to removing the lower half of the valve covers. I am tearing top end of motor apart and am now at a standstill as the lower covers on both sides are stuck on. All bolts are removed and can't see anything holding them from coming off. Now with that, 7 out of the 8 injector hold down bolts twisted off when removing them. All I can assume is that the bolts are bound up against the bores and not allowing cover to pop off. I am at the point where I may just cut the covers up to remove as they are slowing progress to a standstill. Any other ideas?
