Splitting a part for sand casting.

I have modelled the part which is a travelling steady for a lathe. The part will be sand cast and needs to be split it two halves, each half joining on a flat face.

 

I tried using the split pattern function but this seems to be developed more around creating injection moulds.  If you turn off the surface bodies the remaining body is hollow.

 

I wish to split my model into two parts so I can further work on those parts as solid models,   I need to put holes and locating pins so I can align the two halves.   The idea is to 3D print the 2 patterns.
