Question about Boating
If your talking about the lower unit then yes, its fairly simple. You detach shift linkage and the "foot" should pull off strait down after removing the four bolts on the bottom.

Here is a website where a manual for you outboard may be purchased. Outboard Marine went out of buisness in 2000 and thus no parts of origial manufacture are support is available . Therir are secondary markets .
THe Lower case splits in half and their is a seal around the prop shiftm which is pressed in. The seal between the cases are cut o-rings which are placed and glued into place with gasket seal.
The water pump is located where the case splits a little bit higher. You must open the little port on the side and take out one of the screws to the connecting shift linkage to split the case. After splitting the case the drive shaft and water pickup tube(s) wil come out of the powwer head or the tubs may stick into the power head which is ok. Place the lower skag into a vice and remove the 4 or 5 screws to the water pump housing. Remove and replace impellor and impellor plate if available. If part(pieces) of the rubber impellor is missing flush out the tubes and the power head to remove them. When reinstalling the lower unit use a flash light to make sure that the tubes return to the proper place in the power head and the shift lever is resecured. If you need more assistance, just write back. I was an Outboard motor mechanic for five years about the time of your motor.

Several things I would look at would be the Sacrificial Anodes may hold the 2 parts together and then look at the water intake ports. There may be extra bolts behind the water inlets.
You may want to remove the engine from the housing to cut the weight when wrestling with this. You may be able to pull the driveshaft with the engine and get the linkage and water tube out of the way. Sometimes there is just a slip together joint on the driveshaft. If you cut the shaft you may have to open the gearbox to replace it. $$$$
There are some Salvagers on the Net. You will need them to replace what you break. You could contact them on the secrets to getting this apart. Hopefully you will find a hidden bolt to solve all of your problems.

have you changed the impeller inside the lower unit.
There is copper pipe to redirect water up into the engine.
When you replaced the impeller make the copper pipe is insert onto the engine.
