Give it a tap with a small hammer, it most likely was put on while the block paint was still wet at the factory so it just painted that is holding it.

Tried that, could it be engaged somehow

If it is try turning the engine backwards just slightly, you can put a socket on the crank bolt in the front of the engine and with a break over bar turn the engine.

Place a piece of wood and hit it with a big hammer, it's no good anyway. Nothing else holds it in, it's just stuck
