You'll need to remove the impeller from the shaft to change #9 Bushing. I've been able to remove impellers with a oxy-ascy Torch and some patience. You may need the use of a Press if it is Rusted Badly. GL

those can be real muthers to get off when they rust on...... heat and love taps are the only way. You can try the candlewax method - heat it up good and touch the candle onto it such that it can suck some wax into the joint..... sometimes it works.

I was able to free up 2 really seized/frozen augers on one of my Yamaha YS828 yesterday.
It takes patience first of all.
The aproach that i took was to heat (using an oxy/accet torch) the augers close to red hot and cool them off with cold water. I did this in a circular motion doing one side first, then 180 degress, then 90 degrees and another 180 degrees to try to prevent the shaft from warping. It took 2 attemps on each one but after I was able to spin them on the shaft one full turn they came out without major issues.

I would probably clean the end of the shaft, then get it in a press and heat it quickly, just enough to get it to move.

If you don't have an acetylene torch, your best bet you be to drip some PB Blaster thru it for several nights, while tapping it to vibrate some of the liquid inside, then get out the BFH. i was also able to help by putting the shaft inside a piece of pipe and use the Big Hammer. It takes time and patience, but a torch is your best friend for this.
