It is possible but do not be concerned about it unless you have other pumping/ overheating problems,,just replace the impeller/water pump. and run it. as long as everything runs OK forget about it..
the balde may have disintegrated/ or left through the exhaust

Replace the impellor and if doesn't overheat leave it alone. You don't want to be taking apart a 1972 outboard if you don't have to.

If it is so worn that one blade is missing the water pump/impeller is bad,,replace it and try it,,if it pumps and cools, forget it,,however with a motor that age,, you may have other problems
