Has anyone taken apart a Quick Windlass?

I have an older model Quick Windlass which stopped working. I'd love to have a look inside, but I can't take the thing apart.

It is the model that bolts onto two sides of a plank (motor and gearbox below and gypsey above), and I've removed four bolts that pass through the plank and hold the upper and lower bits together. Now I am driving in screwdrivers with a hammer to get the two halves to split, but they're not budging. Is there anything holding it together apart from those four bolts?

The diagrams I find on the web are of newer models only, this one can be about 10 to 15 yrs old. Any ideas?

You'll find that the thing's been stuck to the underside of the deck, most probably.
PM me for details.
