i've always used an air hammer with the belt still on and tap it off real quick to get it to bust loose. Or put a wrench on it and hit the wrench with a hammer.

This the way I've done it also. Put the chisel on the left side of the nut and give a quick blast. It'll loosen up in a couple seconds.

Yes leave the belt on, as far as install just spin it on and either tap it again with the air hammer or use a wrench and snug it up, it will tighten as it spins

If you have the air hammer already buy the fan clutch kit, It has the correct size attachment for any fan hub.

I bought a big handle from Snap-On for holding fan pulleys, it grabs the bolts heads and prevents the pulley from turning. Then put a wrench on the fan nut and smack it "wrench" with a hammer.
