Torquing the ring gear bolts should have pulled everything together, but you might have shaved off a little bit of metal when you pulled the halves together. This might have got between them and could be holding them apart. When you get ready to disassemble it put it in the press with the gear case facing down. Support it around the edge of the clutch case and stick a bar through the hole in the center through the axle gear and press against the cross shaft. That should seperate them.
