Apply heat to it with a gas torch and that should break the seal a little and loosen it off.
Wait until its cooled and it should come out with care.
Just make sure you don't catch anything on fire.

As already said you will need to apply a lot of heat. If it is stuck really bad you will probably need oxy acetylene to get it red hot
