Tip & How-To about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
...ever found you self asking which way to turn a mechanical fan clutch's inline coupling nut to remove clutch-fan assembly (It) without mangling a thread or special wrench? Well then, consider the Griller...Glitter mnemonic system described below and never fail to be "thread-wise in the know."
If you know or can bump the starter to see which way the fan spins viewed from the radiator, then knowing any or all of the easy-to-remember devices below will let you get that clutch off, or on, with confidence. For instance, with a left thread clutch nut, the installed clutch-fan assembly will always spin right/clockwise.
Remember, you only need to remember the ones that are easy to remember.
