That is a project I wouldn't reccomend. besides the "blades" are not really changable. The blades are a piece of metal cut at an angle and when they spin they grind the food by rubbing against a series of holes in the base.
if the disposal is not grinding the food, then its time to replace the disposal.

Leaking sinkmaster 850 garbage disposal


I have had these apart. The leak is from a seal around the motor shaft. By the time it is leaking the shaft has pitted to the point a new seal will not repair it. Getting it apart can result in damaged parts as it is sealed together with very tight tolerances and a glue like sealer.
