Question about 1998 Ford Ranger SuperCab
What is the thread size and diamiter of the i.d. of the fan clutch. The part that threads onto the waterpump on a 1998 ford ranger 3.0 w/ac
Take the part if you can , to a car parts shop . Ask them to measure it for you . Or , you can take a rubbing of the threads , along with the end of the shaft ( A caveat ! ) and measure with a metric ruler . The number for threads is how many per centimeter .
The end of the shaft may not be its diameter , see if it is beveled or has otherwise been changed .

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.

SOURCE: ford ranger truck overheating
I have had this happen with my ranger. Changed everything I could to try to fix the over heating. It turned out that I had a small leak in my head gasket and it was allowing exsaust gas to go into the cooling system witch was over pressurizing it. Also the air from the exsaust will heat up much faster than liquid making your thermostat to read hot and will not be able to blow hot air in the cab because there is no liquid going to the heater core. This happened to me when my blet came off and I tryed to make it home. If you had it over heat for a long peirod of time it may have ripped the head gasket.
