SOURCE: How do i determine whether the fan clutch is left

It's counter clock wise. Getting it lose will be hard but it can be done. What I do is clamp vise grips on the pulley then unbolt fan.

either the multifunction switch is bad or the wiring harness for the blinker is worn threw in the steering column, take it to a shop before you burn up the wirng harness, even if it's fuesd it can still melt thewires and cost a ton of money to fix.

SOURCE: I'm trying to remove the axle nut on my 1999 Dodge

sould be standard left to loosen,, make sure you soak it with PB blaster or Kroil,, I've spun the nuts, before(plow trucks) and had to buy the stub shaft(dealer only $$$) and new U joints,, Keep soaking it!!! Hub bearings are pricey also,, good luck,, You will have to use the jaws to pull it off, and the bolts on the back side, soak those,, I ve separated the hubs before, and then i ve had some come off easy,, Good luck,, total fix $350-$1200 per side. keep soaking, is all i'm saying...

SOURCE: I need the torque specs

The pinion nut does not have a torque spec. as in how tight the nut is. The amount of torque is measured in bearing preload. You will need a "torque to rotate" torque wrench. If you are using new bearings the torque spec. is 15-25 in. lbs. If you are using your old bearings the torque spec. is 10-20 in. lbs to rotate. To measure this you will need to tighten the nut in small increments then use the torque to rotate wrench to turn the pinion without the carrier/ ring gear installed. Repeat until desired torque is reached.

How do I remove the castle nut on the hub assembly of my 2001 Dodge Ram? I need to replace the hub but I can't get the castle nut to budge. Impact guns and breaker bars won't move it at all.

the nut that you are trying to undo may be a left hand thread ( anti clockwise to undo ) try it that way to see if it loosens it ........cheers.

I`m changing the water pump in my 1999 dodge ram 1500, but I can`t lose the fan nut that is attach to the water pump.please help.

Those fan nuts are just tough to get off, however it may have "left-hand" threads. If you can see any threads, look straight down at them...if threads are going "downhill" from right to left, then they are common right-hand threads, Lefty lucy-Righty tighty. However if the threads are going "downhill" from left to right, then they are left-hand threads, and you will need to turn the nut "clockwise" to loosen it. Hope this helps....let me know either way!!

The pinion nut will not come off this is the front axle is it left hand threaded

I've never seen a left hand thread on a pinion. They are normally very tight. We use a half inch air impact wrench to take them off. An alternative would be to hold the yoke with a large pipe wrench and turn the nut with a socket on a long breaker bar. You can even use a pipe as an extension to the breaker bar

I want to replace my pinion seal and i need the procedure to set the crush collar ,ive done many rears in the past , i just forgot. mostly 9 in fords and 12 bolt chevy. do u do 05 ram 1500 the same

It would be hard for me to tell you exactly, but I can tell you what will work. Being everything is all together and in the vehicle, you will need to do this by feel. With the wheels off the ground, the brakes can't be dragging, you have the seal installed, put the yolk and nut on, preferably with a half inch drive impact, run the nut up until it barley starts to get tight. Then take both hands and turn the pinion yolk, you need to tighten the pinion nut a little at a time until it starts to get a little hard to turn using both hands, If the brakes are rubbing, you wont get the right feel. If you can't turn that yolk with both hands, it is to tight.
