G'day yes it is possible to remove the fan. As stated above it is much easier with the radiator removed when doing a water pump.

Yep. Been there.
Never thought to say that with old hose fittings of almost any type it's worth putting some loctite pipe sealant on.
It's expensive but it lasts for years and stops fittings leaking.
And it allows fittings to be easily undone next time. Been using it for years. Never let me down yet.
