    They get stuck from rust/corrosion, Hold a piece of 2x4 over the blade side and smack it with a BFH. That should pop it right out.

    you didnt say if the 6 bolts are carrage type or have regular hex heads.if they have carrage heads jusy knock the housing loose,but if they are hex heads it means the bolts are threaded through the deck and you will need to turn them out first.
