Hello
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 .

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.

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.

Fan clutch retaining remove


Use a screwdriver between two of the 4 waterpump nuts while wrenching on the big nut. Possible left hand thread, call the dealership and ask for service department to see if it is L/H thread. hope this helps.

Need to take the fan off to replace the water pump. How is that done? Which way are the threads?


You didn't indicate what engine your Explorer is equipped with, so this is general information.

  • You will need this type of special tool set to hold the fan clutch, and loosen the nut.
  • The specification of fan clutch nut thread direction should be stamped into the fan shroud plastic near the hood latch.
  • You will most likely need to remove the air duct for clearance.
  • You may need to loosen, or remove the the fan shroud for clearance.

Replacing water pump, how doers the fan come off the pump shaft. It looks like it's screwed on with a large hex nut but how can I loosen it without the shaft turning. Frustrated


The fan clutch is threaded onto the water pump. They make a tool to hold the pulley from turning so you can turn the large hex part of the clutch. You can probably rent one for free from a parts store like autozone or the like. Keep in mind some clutches are left hand threads also keeping the belt on the pulley also helps the pulley from spinning also.

How to change a cluth fan on a 1996 GM astro van


If it is the type I am thinking about... (a hexigon shaft coming from the waterpump pulley attatching it to the fan surrounded by 4 bolts that hold the pully to the waterpump) with this design you usuially need a clutch fan removal tool. basicly a very flat wrench and a y shaped "holding" tool (this tool basicly grips the waterpump pulley by 2 of its bolts or 2 holes in some models and you use it against the force of the wrench to crack the two loose) basicly the hex shaft is partially hollow and has a thread on the inside it attaches to a short threaded part that pertrudes from the pulley mount when it comes off expect to catch the fan and hex shaft. be careful not to attempt this without either isolating the pully from the serpintine belt or otherwise ensuring that you arent going to turn the engine over manually if you slip. also in some similar models the hex shaft may be a left handed thread. in many cases some auto supply stores may lend you specialty tools (or rent them) with a small deposit, a gm dealer can tell you if that particular model and year will thread left or right.... hope this helps

Waterpump


The easiest thing to do would be to measure the length of the studs in the old pump including the thickness of the flange,and take one of the old nuts back to the parts store. Get bolts the same length and sized to fit the nut. Use these instead. Makesure the holes in the new flange are threaded,if not get the bolts a little longer, the thickness of the nut.

Radiator fan motor on my 1998 cavalier


Normally, the fan will not spin at the same RPM as the engine. This is the purpose of the fan clutch. On the fan clutch sits a little thermal spring that engages the clutch to spin the fan at the same rpm as the motor when the motor gets hotter than normal.

Being able to hold onto the fan while the motor is running, is normal (not recommended, but normal).
You can test the clutch by heating it and then trying to spin the fan while the motor is off. If it is still easy to spin, you could have a bad fan clutch, or you didn't heat it enough. It is kind of a crappy way to test.

You not having cooling issues leads me to guess that your clutch is alright. But I don't know what type of climate you live it, nor do I know in what condition your clutch is.

They can actually be difficult to replace. Easy theory, but actually doing the job may be harder than you think. They are threaded onto the water pump pulley (just one big threaded stud). To remove you need to either be really crafty, or you need a wrench designed to hold the pulley in place while you loosen the clutch and fan assembly. No, the pulley drive belt is not enough to keep the pulley from turning (it will either slip or you will turn the crank of the motor).

Usually they are on there pretty tight! When I replaced my water pump on my truck, I could not remove the fand and clutch from the water pump while in the truck (I had to remove my radiator shroud and remove it all in one piece) then I had to weld the old water pump impeller to the casting to keep it from spinning then broke it loose with a 2ft breaker bar! Seriously.

Once you get the old one off, remove the fan and bolt it to your new clutch unit. Then thread it on the water pump.
