Need tools to remove fan nut

Is there anyone in the NOVA area that can lend me a tool(s) to remove the viscouse fan from a 4.0 litre motor? I would love to borrow this friday night. Easy pickup from the Arlington Courthouse or McLean area. Willing to drive some distance to pick this up.

LRT-12-093 to prevent coolant pump pulley from turning
LRT-12-094 to remove the fan nut


I have tried all manor of cresent wrenches and pliers and just can not get the grip needed to break the nut free. (Do not ask - I already checked and the fan nut is a regular thread - lefty loosey. / Discovery motor)

Whack the end of the cresent wrench with a hammer. A bicycle wrench works best.

I have been using a 20 inch flat head screw driver and a bfh for years. Works every time

bicycle wrench is what I used, which can be purchased from any bike shop. Cheap and easy to get.

Dave I find wrapping a large screwdriver in a rag and jam it inbetween the belt and the pulley it holds against turning well enough to be able to whack a regular wrench to break it free.
