Hello Mark. My name is Tan.

Remove the 4 retainer screws # ***** the lower will drop down a little bit then remove the screw # ***** in the shift coupler # ***** Now you can remove the lower unit. Remove the 4 screws #9 from the water pump housing # ***** Now you can remove the impeller. Replace any worn parts along with the impeller. I always went ahead and did a complete kit. Reassemble in reverse.
