If I remember right that's a threaded shaft so it's on to the right and off to the left.
but they can be a pain to get off, so apply some heat to the impeller close to the shaft, this will cause the impeller to expand an ease in its removal, the trick is to not heat the shaft and work quickly, use a wood block and a big hammer to hit on veins close to the hub and alternate frequently between them.

SOURCE: How do you remove the impeller on a honda wt40x

The impeller is threaded onto the crankshaft. Pull the spark plug wire then turn the motor until you are coming up on the compression stroke and the vanes of the impeller are mostly vertical. At about two o'clock on the pump bell there should be a port so you can put a metal rod through it, resting it against one of the vanes at the top of the impeller. Go to http://powerequipment.honda.com/pumps/models/wt40 and about half way down the page it shows the "Easy quick cleanout port" feature. This is how you should be set up to turn the impeller counter-clockwise to turn it off. The use of a dead blow hammer or one similar to the one in the Honda picture is recommended as the impeller is cast and a steel hammer may cause the impeller to crack. Put the new one on tight but don't worry about overdoing it, the motor spins in a self tightening direction so it'll get tighter with use.

Ap-125 homelite gas watwer pump pull cord replace


few years late but here: guessing your problem area is the impeller blade? remove impeller blade by turning clockwise ( i put a screwdriver in the pull cord fin to stop shaft). Then remove spring around rubber gasket behind blade (then rubber gasket pulls off shaft. everything else just UN-bolts. Just figured it out myself today.

Can this pump handel solids during the pumping?


Trash pumps will handle any solids small enough to get through the intake hose screen. This usually means most mud and sand and other debris. If you take the screen off the intake hose you run the risk of sucking up too much solid material and overwhelming the pump or sucking up items too big to get through the impeller. Sticks are also a no go through these pumps. If they are small enough to get into the impeller they'll get chewed up but usually they get stuck in the hose attachment area and create a dam for everything else coming up the hose.

My pump is humming but not pumping the water, what is the problem?


You are right, it is not running since there is no water
that goes out. It is just humming - which be due to
stucked impeller or busted starting capacitor. Let's start with checking up the impeller. Unscrew the strainer, and take it off. At the suction port, try turning the impeller by your finger. This is to check if it is stucked. If it is stucked, open the bolt holding the impeller case, so that you can free the impeller from
being stucked. Once the impeller is free, you can assemble the pump and switch it on and make it run.
If it doesn't run, then the final touch is to replace the
starting capacitor at the topcase of trash pump. In
doing this, make sure that in the reassembly of the top case, you must maintain the right force to close
the top case bolts water tight. Just send you e-mail
for further assistance. God Bless you.
