Sounds to me as if there is a loose nut on the fan portion, or the fins are broken off the fan. Open up the side where the fan is and check the nut for tightness. You may want to make sure that you set the fan in the keyway, if there is one on there to prevent it from turning.

Is the big nut holding the fan to the clutch right hand, (right to tighten,left to loosen)? 1993 navajo


You mean standard or reverse thread?
Usually crank nuts are reverse thread in relation to the direction of the pulley.

So if the pulley\engine spins clockwise then the nut is probably going to loosen by spinning it counterclockwise.

Afterall it would do no good to go down the road and have the rotation of the engine spin the nut off of the crank pulley eh?

I need to know which direction the fan bolt turns to get it off a 2002 trailblazer with a 4.2 vortec egine


It is probably left-hand threads, meaning turning it clockwise will loosen it. This may sound silly but, if you can see any of the threads from straight above....if threads run "downhill" from left to right its left hand threads, if threads run "downhill" from right to left its right hand threads. The bolt or nut on fan clutches are tough to loosen any way. You can't hurt it easily. You might try smacking the end of the wrench with a mallet. Hope this is clear as mud!!

I`m changing the water pump in my 1999 dodge ram 1500, but I can`t lose the fan nut that is attach to the water pump.please help.


Those fan nuts are just tough to get off, however it may have "left-hand" threads. If you can see any threads, look straight down at them...if threads are going "downhill" from right to left, then they are common right-hand threads, Lefty lucy-Righty tighty. However if the threads are going "downhill" from left to right, then they are left-hand threads, and you will need to turn the nut "clockwise" to loosen it. Hope this helps....let me know either way!!

Have tried everything, can't get one of the grinding wheels off.


On a bench grinder the wheels turn towards you. This means the grinding wheel on the right side, has a right and nut, and the left side has a left handed nut. If you're trying to remove the left side turn the nut counter-clockwise
