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.

What kind of tool did you use? Did you turn the shaft in the correct direction?

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.

One tool holds the pulley while the other turns the shaft.

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.
