Fan clutch tool

Well I started tearing into my truck again... because my water pump took a shit on me. Guess I should have done it when I did my head gaskets.

I was wondering if there is a special fan clutch tool to hold the pulley so you can loosen the nut to remove the fan.

And help would be appreciated.

yes there is a special tool and Napa has it for $27 just got one today so i could do my stupid water pump on my 08. because your asking about special tools did you get the one to lock the flywheel to remove the harmonic balancer bolt with the special socket?

Finally got rid of my 03 and told the guy what a peice it is but he still gave me 7K.

LOVE the 08 much better truck, K&N filter, DPF delete, rims?, 1500 style tailgate guard.

You can use a chain wrench too. Autozone sells it .. daralast brand it looks like a pair of vise grips with a roller chain connected.. it works like a charm !! It's like 25 bucks
