I'm learning molding

The wheel I need to mold is attached on this post


All tutorials tell me to create a plane for the parting line - but life ain't that simple.


Funny thing is: the Parting Line Analysis, under Evaluate, gives a perfect parting line (see pic), as it prevents undercuts, which are prohibitive for the milling operations



That's exactly where I need the molds cut, but have no idea how to convert this to that.


The following gives an "idea" of where the parting line should go:




I am to worry only about the inner side of the wheel. The mold already exists where the tire goes
