There is a special tool out there for this. The pulley that the fan is mounted to has a series of holes around it. You insert a hooked C shaped tool into one of the holes and use a wrench on the fan base. Remember its left hand thread. Autozone sell the tool I think. If not I know Matco do.

Love my truck, but hate the reliability. Love the look of the 2011 if its RELIABLE

Give it a light tap with a air hammer with a flat chisel end.

WRONG!!!

You must be thinking of a 6.4L. For future reference, always remember to look at the direction in which the fan rotates. If it rotates in the SAME direction as the engine's crankshaft (like a 6.4L diesel, or a 3.0L Ranger or Aerostar gas engine and I'm sure various other applications), THEN and only THEN is it a left hand thread.

But on 6.0L and 7.3L DIT engines, or any other engine where the fan rotates in the OPPOSITE direction as the engine crankshaft (counterclockwise when viewed from the from the front), it is ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS right hand threaded.

Just be careful when utlizing this method or you can damage the threads on the water pump, as well as the hex on the fan clutch.

This is why I prefer using the correct fan clutch tools for removal.

Hey m-chan68 I have a 6.0 which is pouring fuel into the cylinder but not the coolant. I changed the injector, it does it with just the key on. The original injector was loose in the hole and the bottom o ring had blown. My question is can I replace the cup in situ?

I was sure it was LH thread. Working from memory uh, not good.
