Looking rearward towards front of engine from in front of radiator, which way, CW or CCW, does 87Ford Ranger2.9L crankshaft (fan & pump) turn?


fan clutches are Left hand thread as they tighten up when the engine is running. If they were right hand thread then when the fan is working they would come loose off the shaft
In short undoing then actually tightens them

Need help removing clutch fan and water pump from 1989 ford ranger


the fan is threaded onto the water pump, they do make a set of wrenches to remove the fan. but all you have to do is leave the belt on the water pump and take a long blunt nose punch and put the tip of the punch on the very edge of one of the flats on the big nut on the back of the fan and hit it with a hammer, keep in mind the direction of the threads most are right handed but some of the early ones were left handed threads, if they are left handed it should be marked on the fan shroud, in a pinch the drag bar off the back of a tiller makes a pretty good punch......GOOD LUCK.....just remember righty tighty lefty loosey

How do I remove the fan assembly from the water pump on a 2003 chevy suburban?


You'll need a clutch fan wrench. It's a thin, large open end wrench that is available at most part stores. Place the tool over the large bolt that holds the clutch fan to the water pump and give it a quick hit similating an impact gun. You may have to do this a couple of times, but the clutch fan will come loose and simply unscrew it.
