Water pump

you must remove fan shroud. theres a tool for the clutch fan but you can use a impact hammer and a 12" bit (left hand thread) loosen pully bolts before removing belt (belt will hold pully from turning) then remove 4 or 6 bolts holding pump on (look at new pump for bolt amounts not sure) clean serfices and install)

Remove fan from water pump on a 1997 Ford F150 4.2 Liter

There is a special tool that is required to hold the fan clutch. Then the fan screws out of the clutch. The tool can be bought or rented at your friendly parts store like autozone, etc. It will look something like this:

You may have a defective alternator, but other things should be checked and ruled out first. Erratic voltage can be due to several things. 
A bad battery can cause the alternator to put out inconsistent voltages. Check battery voltage with a voltmeter. It should be over 12.4 volts without vehicle running. Battery connections should be removed and cleaned, even if they look ok.

A loose or worn out fan belt that is partially slipping can cause a good alternator to not charge the battery at idle speeds. The voltage at idle should be above 12.8 volts, and preferably 13.2 to 14.5 volts. Tighten the fan/alternator belt to see if it makes a voltage difference or use a bit of "belt dressing" spray for better belt grip. Replace the belt if questionable.

There could be an "internal harness" problem with the wiring connectors between the alternator and the battery. That can be traced by unwrapping the wiring tape on the alternator main wire and looking for signs of overheated wires.  Also, the plastic wiring connector that plugs into the alternator can be bad on the ford alternators, with a new connector often being required.
