Re: Big Guy

The big nut on the fan shaft is right hand thread. They get pretty tight. I usually use an air hammer to hit the edge of the nut to loosen it, then use a wrench or by hand. Remove the upper shroud plastic rivets and then take it out of the way. The coolant doesn't usually come out the top hole.
