Yes, the large fan clutch nut (32mm ?) is threaded in reverse i.e left threaded on my BMW, I guess it is the same on your engine although a different model. I used a large screwdriver between the pulley bolt heads to fix it in place while loosing the clutch nut.

Good luck!

How do i remove the fan and pulley on a 1987 ford ranger 2.9 v-6?


The question is: How remove clutch in order to remove fan mounted on its engine-side face.
  • Generally, the clutch drive half shaft must be uncoupled from coolant pump (impeller drive) half shaft using special wrench kit available as loaner from AutoZone (free with $79 approx deposit).
  • Best done after shroud & radiator remove after coolant drained.
  1. Uncouple coolant pump and fan clutch drive shaft(s) as follows:
    1. span across combo-pulley-sheaves-unit mounting bolt heads with large tool kit wrench, and
    2. span inline clutch coupling nut with small tool kit wrench. Then,
    3. turn small wrench (and coupling nut) CW while resisting with large wrench (CCW) to turn coupling nut until disengaged from coolant pump drive shaft.
  2. Remove fan/clutch assembly.
  3. Note direction of mounted fan hub and fan blades orientation to ensure proper re-assembly.
  4. On rear of clutch assy, remove 4 bolts to disengage and remove fan.
  5. Assemble new fan to clutch (or, preferably, new clutch and new fan) using new bolts and washers provided with fan.
  6. Couple fan-clutch assy to coolant pump drive shaft as per opposite of uncoupling step 1, above. (Turn inline nut CCW to tighten...30 ft-lb.
  7. Check that fan can be hand turned...CW.)
  8. Rest shroud over and onto fan.
  9. Replace radiator; remount shroud; reclamp hoses, and refill and air purge cooling system.

I put a new fan clutch on, the pully where the fan clutch bolts to is now loose, oil coming from behind pully, and sounds like fan is hitting shroud cover , and the reduced engine power light came on .


It sounds like something went wrong during the installation of your new fan clutch. If the bolts are loose the fan may very well be hitting the shroud. Your new clutch is probably a viscous style clutch and is filled with an oil like fluid and could be the oil that you are seeing. If your clutch was not working correctly and the vehicle was getting hot it may have caused the reduced power light to come on.

Cant get the fan clutch nut off the front of the old water pump so the pump can be removed Have Cowl removed the fan loose and Two bolts removed from the Water pump pully and belt loose


Ok, it's best to have the fan belt ON all the way, that way it holds the pulley in place. Then, put your wrench on the nut, and tap the wrench with a hammer. This will break it loose, and then you can unscrew it the rest of the way. It works like an impact wrench.

The rad fan is loose, how do I tighten it


Hope your fan has not fallen off.

There is two posibilities I can think of.

The fan is bolt to a fan-clutch, these bolts rarely come loose without help.

The Fan clutch can come loose but it too usually needs help from some one to loosen.

I think you should have a technician look at it to make sure what is causing this.
If on the other hand you have had recent work done, the fan clutch may have been left loose.

Good Luck
