Honda BF115 Impeller Change

Hi All
I have to change the impeller on my Honda BF115 before the start of the season and I cannot find any info on how to do it specific to the Honda outboard. I have a workshop manual but that has nothing on the lower leg (strange or what) and the owners manual just gives the basics on servicing etc. I have looked on you tube as well which is great but none of the examples are Honda. Being an engineer I hate not knowing what I am doing as it can go sooo wrong so I am being cautious. (being a jock I am also too tight to pay for it if I can do it myself)
Can any of you assist with any info such as:
Is there a special technique with Hondas when doing the work i.e. leaving in gear, hidden lower leg bolts.
Is there a close engine such as mariner etc which may be on you tube.

Any help would be appreciated

Cheers
Colin

I'm surprised it's not in the workshop manual under the section covering the gearbox.

I got a dodgy copy off the interweb so I presume half is missing.

It is just straight forward to remove the gearcase on the Honda 115. Then you see everything easy.
Watch up for corrision on the oil pan. Especially if it is corrision around the exhaust pipe close to it. We had to change the pipe and the oil pan on a honda 130 in Sweden.

Honda 130 Guess what the "problem" was?
