Sometimes they are a motherf---er to get off. I just found a place to use a prybar with damaging anything and it will come off. Sometimes I also use a rubber mallet and hit a few times around the alignment pins and that works for me also.

Many of us have been there.

I had to take a 2x4 and place it where the starter was. And then to proceed to beat the absolute hell out of it. I destroyed the 2x4... but the bellhousing eventually came off.

maybe try sprying some PB blaster where the pins are and let it soak in for a few minutes. after you get it off, would it help (in the future) to put anti-seize on the guide pins?

Yes, a little anti-sieze (after a little light sanding to clean them up) on the dowel pins is a good idea.
