SOURCE: 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.

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?

How do I remove the fan from 1997 dodge dakota pick up not seeing how to remove. Should the shroud come off with fan? Where are bolts or fasteners holding the fan in place?


Its been a while since I've messed with a Dodge...but the fan shroud should be two pieces (upper & lower). This way you can remove the upper section of the shroud.
Then you'll need a special sized wrench to get that "fan nut" loose.
Not sure if this model is the one that the fan nut is a left hand thread or not...but leverage can sometimes be obtained by using a prybar across the fan clutch bolts.

Hope this helps a little...

I need to know which direction the fan bolt turns to get it off a 2002 trailblazer with a 4.2 vortec egine


It is probably left-hand threads, meaning turning it clockwise will loosen it. This may sound silly but, if you can see any of the threads from straight above....if threads run "downhill" from left to right its left hand threads, if threads run "downhill" from right to left its right hand threads. The bolt or nut on fan clutches are tough to loosen any way. You can't hurt it easily. You might try smacking the end of the wrench with a mallet. Hope this is clear as mud!!

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!!

Fan clutch removal


the four bolts holding the fan clutch to the water pump pulley are loosened counter clockwise. If you don't have a pulley holding tool at hand, use a wrench(closed end side) as a locking leverage on the studs(do not place the wrench on the nuts) while loosening the nuts 1 by 1 with another wrench. When reinstalling use the same method, but place black elec tape over the studs(prevent thread damage) after you hand tighten the bolts for the fan clutch. hopefully this helps

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.
