    short answer...yes

    but i dont think its worth the grief and cuts to hands and F words used..

    WFO does it in hull but he has had special swivel wrist + elbow joints fitted in his right arm for this job...

    I have done it in the hull quit a few times its not a big deal. Just get a 1 1/16" end wrench on the intermediate shaft and a puller on the flywheel.

    To the right , looking at it.

    Don't forget to support the front of the motor, and use some towels to pad the hull when removing the flywheel.

    Pics are always our friend. Oops keith beat me to it with the pic. I have done the install with the engine in the boat and out and as you can imagine out of the boat is easier but wouldnt remove the engine just to install keyway. Just be ready to be a contortionist.

    considering how easy pulling the motor is, i just do that if you have the capability and tools to do so. Especially if you're not familiar with the parts in and around the stator cover. Or try it in the boat and if it starts to get shady then pull the engine.
