Your post was really old before I read it but... You need a pair of special tools... one to remove one to install clutch with. If you don't do this often the price is not justified. Just get a decent compressor at a junkyard, put it in and have it charged!!! If youre talking about the fan & clutch on the front of the water pump, just unbolt it and put a new one on!!!

With the belt still installed, have someone lean on the belt...this should keep the pulley from turning while you work on the bolts. You can also use a large screwdriver and wedge it between one bolt you are not yet working on and the shaft, using that to hold the pulley still. Loosen all of them before removing, otherwise, you will run out of bolts to hold when you get to the last one.

Remember, fan has a reverse thread. Righty-tightey, lefty-loosey does not apply. You need a clutch fan wrench. (available at your local auto parts store.)

there are special tools for this, but you should be able to do it by holding the pulley by sticking two bolts through the holes and placing a pry bar between them. grab the large hex with a large wrench, or crescent wrench and turn it loose. to my knowledge all the dodges are right hand thread

sounds like you have done a lot with this there is a few things that you can do to ensue every thing is running right.
first if you can get a handheld thermal gun and check the temperature at the temp sensor on the radiator or block then see what it reads compared to the guage to ensure the guage is correct.
next check the temperature at both the top and the bottom of the radiatoer if there is a big difference in temps the radiator is partially blocked a radiator will increase 30 to 100 degrees if the radiator is 20 percent blocked.. also check to ensure that the radiator hoses are not collapsing.
Now ensure that you are not gettin air in the system by way of the water pump gasket or by loose hoses ok?
and finaly check to ensure that the heater core is not leaking and drawing air into the system or is clogged this will make a vehical give the overheating symptom also ok?
Let me know how this is going
Best regards mikle
