Fan clutch how-to

Yes, I've searched and all I can find is how to determine good or not.

Is there a step-step-guide out there on how to replace the fan clutch? I've ordered a replacement clutch and the wrench from Zack but would like some guidance before I start into this. 95 NAS Wagon btw

Thanks Board!!

Crack the nut with the wrench and spin it off. Nut is reverse thread.

Get pulley holder if you don't have one or massive waterpump pliers.

Hold pulley and loosen nut with the wrench (may have to put wrench on and tap with a hammer to break static friction)
Remove top bolts/nuts of fan shroud if equipped
Slip fan assembly out if the front of the shroud between the rad r frame and shroud.
Remove and replaced the fan clutch via four bolts
Put some antiseize on the fan hub threads on end of waterpump
Slip fan assembly back In
Lay fan in bottom of shroud
Put shroud back into place
Reverse thread the fan assembly back into place
Hold pulley and tighten nut
Debate why you went through this annoying experience and didn't replace it with an electric fan.


Tldr is a bitch to start the nut moving to remove and replace it. Have fun




Edit: Adam beat me to it

Channel lock or plumbers pliers that are big enough to grip the whole pulley if your fan nut is stuck on like mine was. Copper grease the threads every once in a while to avoid it.

that nut is the worst part.
