clutch fan removal (thermo installation help) EDIT

anyone here made up a clutch fan removal tool i could borrow?
or have a good solution to stop the water pump spinning while you unbolt the actuall fan?


thanks in advance...

[EDIT]

also i was wondering what you guys used to attatch the shroud to the radiator?
i was thinking of getting an ef radiator so it would bolt straight on

will an ef radiator bolt straight on to the ea chassis?

[/EDIT]

Re: clutch fan removal

I really can't remember how I did it exactly, I'm sure I used a screwdriver wedged between the pulley bolts while I loosened the fan.

I've got the spanner in my toolbox at work, I'll pack it on Saturday incase.

BTW, saw you about a month ago getting off the freeway just near the citylink center

Re: clutch fan removal

All you need to do is get a spanner which fits on the large fan nut (from memory it's about 1" or slightly larger), put the spanner on the bolt so the spanner sits upwards and hit it a few times with a hammer in the reverse direction of fan rotation (cover the fenders etc with a cloth so the spanner doesn't go flying off and dent a panel). After a couple of hits it normally shocks loose, but if it is siezed on there it can take a while.

Re: clutch fan removal

Just stick a old wiper arm hook bit between one of the pulley bolts and the bolt, then bolt the other end of the arm to the battery tray. That should hold your pulley good Bozza Hope you know what I mean. That usually pulls out stuck thermos fans. If you really start cracking it, pull out the radiator and shroud, then grind off the fan blades. That will give you way better access.
