I would say - yes

From the manual I found these instructions:

Remove five bolts, intake air shot air valve, water pipes, carburetor coolant thermal valve, and the thermostat housing from the engine.

Yes it can. But it is buried! I had a bolt break on mine while replacing the thermostat. Remove the left pipe retainer bolt and you can get enought movement to get the housing pulled forward and out. i suggest replacing both O rings to prevent a leak. You do not want to re do it a second time.
