first question. It looks like I need to pull the muffler in order to get a clear shot at the water pump cover and have room to pull the impeller. Has any one done this job without pulling the muffler? And two. How the heck do I pull the muffler?

It's a PITA but you don't have to pull the muffler. Remove the 4 brass screws. Remove cover. Spray WD-40 or fogging oil into the impeller pump housing in a couple of spots. Turn the boat over a couple of (quick) times. Use vice grips from below the muffler. Make sure you grab one fin and pull. If it doesn't come out, use a hose pick from the top. The key is to have even pressure. If you can you pull from the bottom with the vice grips and have a buddy use the pick from the top at the same time. If you don't have a buddy just use even pressure from the top and bottom the best you can. It will take awhile but you will get it!!
