Honda xl185 oil pump/engine rebuild

I have looked through Clymer and Haynes manuals but its unclear.

I am having trouble removing the two screws (78-79 Honda XL185 motor) which retain the oil pump body to the right crankcase half. I have tried an impact driver and broken the bits, also tried heat without success thinking they might be glued in.

Can I split the cases with the pump in situ? It would then be easier to drill the screw heads if I have to.

Thanks for any info.
