Well I gave it a week of tapping/soaking, but I am sorry to say my patience has run out.  It had lifted one edge very slightly, so i got a small screwdriver under it and snapped the ring.  I had to lever the ring off in small chunks because it was so caked in.  I have cleaned out the slit using a bit of the broken ring ( I hope that I have not been too violent with it).  Someone suggested that I use oven cleaner to help clean the slit , so I will get some today.  I have ordered a new ring which should come early next week.  In the end I bought it from my local Husqvarna dealer ( I chickened out and wanted to make sure that I got the right replacement , it was only a few quid more).

deezlfan suggested that I might put a little Moto-Seal on the flange.  I was going to order some of this on ebay.....

Would that be ok to use?

Thanks again for all your help.
