Yes, it should come out pretty easily. Once you take it off the shaft, it is just sitting in the cover, nothing holding it there but old age. Why are you changing the impeller? You should know that if there is any weepage of oil/grease out of the pump (you can see it in the third photo) or water out of the cover(from the little screw in the first picture on the bottom of the cover) You will need a new or rebuilt pump.
