i need to know how to install upper control arm?

That job is fairly easy. Remove the through bolt at each end and remove the arm. Install is the reverse.
If one of the bolts is frozen in the bushing, use lots of solvent, put the nut back on the end of the bolt so it covers the threads and use a heavy hammer on it to break it loose. Then remove the nut and continue on. If you have difficulty getting the holes to line up on install you can put a large pipe wrench on an axle tube so you have leverage to turn it. Always make sure the vehicle is safely supported so you don't have it fall while working.

I need a Master Bilt Cam Wrench to disassemble a Walk-in freezer. What can I use and where can I find it?

All the walkin coolers that I have installed use a allen wrench and I beleive it is 3/8 inch. Try allen wrenches first. Rus

Fan clutch removal

the four bolts holding the fan clutch to the water pump pulley are loosened counter clockwise. If you don't have a pulley holding tool at hand, use a wrench(closed end side) as a locking leverage on the studs(do not place the wrench on the nuts) while loosening the nuts 1 by 1 with another wrench. When reinstalling use the same method, but place black elec tape over the studs(prevent thread damage) after you hand tighten the bolts for the fan clutch. hopefully this helps
