      either go rent or buy the tools necessary. autozone rents them out.

      that or get creative and fab some tools up from scrap metal. thats what i did so i dont have to bother my buddy for his real set of tools..

      Special tool

      You can rent one of the special tools shown below. I've also used a 15 inch long adjustable wrench on the clutch nut and a very long box wrench on one of the pulley bolts while pressing against a second pulley bolt.

      Use the fan clutch tool.. preferrably the set with 2 long wrenches.. Sometimes having another person hold one wrench while you turn the other helps.. Remember they are reverse threads. We did a fan clutch swap at All Ford Nationals in under 10 minutes between 3 of us working on it.

      i got it the problem was every one told me it was revers thread and i got the new part and it wasnt and i did it with out the cluch tools. i put a boxed end wrench on one of the pully bolt and had it leaning against the bolt next to it and put a open end wrench on the nut.

      You just hit it a little in the nut flat in the direction of removal. It's not that tight. ( unless your going in the wrong direction) . mine moved less than an
      1/8 of a flat. took it the rest of the way off by hand. Done in 30 sec.:D
