It's most likely right hand thread. You will have to use a large breaker bar to get enought leverage to remove this nut. Or you can use what ever you have and place a steel pipe on the end of it for extra leverage. If it doesn't budge, you may have to soak it in penetrating oil, and use an impact wrench. Make sure you remove the large washer under the nut "before" you remove pulley.

Is the big nut holding the fan to the clutch right hand, (right to tighten,left to loosen)? 1993 navajo

You mean standard or reverse thread?
Usually crank nuts are reverse thread in relation to the direction of the pulley.

So if the pulley\engine spins clockwise then the nut is probably going to loosen by spinning it counterclockwise.

Afterall it would do no good to go down the road and have the rotation of the engine spin the nut off of the crank pulley eh?

Problems with Ford fan clutch wrench.

what i used to do to hold it and you need two people to do it.... is to have one person apply pressure to the fan belt so the pulleys would not turn.... then hold the fan blade with one hand and loosen the bolts

Could someone tell me how to remove the fan clutch on 88 bronco 2

Leave the belt on, and put a screwdriver or other flat metal object across two of the bolt heads that are sticking out on the pulley to hold back. Make sure that you have sprayed the nut and threads with penetrating oil and let sit for five minutes before attempting. You may have to bump the wrench with a hammer while you are holding the pulley back with the other hand. The only other way is to use a really large pair of channel locks to hold back the pulley. The channel lock brand sells a plier called the "Big Azz". I suppose a large pipe wrench would do also if you could fit it in there.
Please remember to rate this solution.

How to replace 1998 dodge ram van water pump, reading the manuel but having a hard time getting the cluth nut off, the book say use a special tool what the special tool?

There is a special spanner wrench that you need to hold onto the water pump pulley (the 2 holes in the big pulley the belt rides on).
The tool has a Y shape to it with a handle coming off the bottom end of the Y. There will be 2 pins in the ends of the V that fit into the holes on the pulley (adjustable). You put the pins into the holes, grab the handle with the left hand, and put a 15 inch cresent wrench in the right hand onto the clutch nut. Pull up on the Y shaped tool handle with the pins, push down on the wrench to the left (counter clockwise) to un-screw the clutch from the pulley.
Then take the clutch off the fan after you have it out of the truck.
THEN, take the belt off, then the pulley/clutch asembly off, then the water pump (replace with a NEW - NOT REBUILT PUMP).
The new only costs 20 bucks or so more, and it is worth the headache of paying more while you have it apart. If the clutch is shot, the pump is close behind because of the vibrations ruins the seals/bearings on the pump, even though you cant hear the noise, it is there. Take the LOWER fan shroud completely off by removing the trans lines from the radiator. pull the fan out the BOTTOM of the Van. Leave the top shroud in place but take the screws out so you can manuever the lower shroud out. You also may have to remove the lower radiator hose and move it aside. Good time to change coolant anyway. And since you are in there on top, change the thermostat, while you are doing the cooling system service. Use a PREAMIUM BRAND thermostat, like a STANT, it will have a small vent hole with a valve in it hanging off the side edge of the thermostat that helps vent air from the system so it will not overheat. Trapped air can cause the cooling system to overheat, so dont put the thermostat in upside down! Point go's UP.

Fan clutch screws on to the water pump. You can loosen it with a big adjustable wrench (it is about 1 1/2" or 1 9/16" hex). Leave the bolts for the pulley in so you could wedge a screwdriver under a bolt head to keep the pulley from turning. Give the wrench a hard **** to loosen and it should turn off by hand. Right hand threads so you will be turning it counter clockwise to remove.

Harmonic balancer for 1999 dodge ram 1500

well if i remember correctly that fan clutch is reverse threads so in other words to loosen it you'll have to turn your wrench clockwise. they do this cuz the rotation of the fan will tighten itself onto the water pump. anyway what i do is leave the serpentine belt on the the pulleys and that will kinda hold them steady whilst you put the "special" wrench on the clutch and pop it loose you'll prolly need a cheater bar to make things easier but not too much or you'll overcome the traction of the belt and it will just slip.
