Question about the nut that holds the clutch fan on. Is it reverse thread and how do I break it loose? Thanks Bill NY

on a 92?

If it is left hand thread it will say on the fan shroud.

I believe your 4.0L OHV in 92 is regular right hand thread.
You need a special fan clutch tool, you can borrow it from any good parts store for free (leave a deposit)

I ended up renting them so often that I just bought one from Napa for $28, works great! IN fact I jsut used it yesterday.....

When standing in front of the vehicle, its lefty loosy to take the fan off on a 92 (I just took one off a '92 and '91 within the last few months)

Thanks again! What a drama...Borrowed an air chisel and hit it a few times and then a giant pair of pump pliers. Finally got it(the NAPA by me wanted $80 for tool and no rentals) After I reassembled everything still overheating. Changed to the original t stat and now seems fine. Actually reading a little low but heat cranks. Also flushed out entire system. We'll see what happens. I'll probably be buggin' you guys for more info! Thanks Bill NY
