You could put the plugs back in their holes and crank the motor (let compression do it's work).

You're very sure you didn't miss any bolts (?)

Agree with MSG-T - with the plugs back in the heads, a quick crank of the starter should crack them free. Better than pounding at them, for sure.

What I did was take a broomstick and put it one of the intake holes and pry down until it pops.
