Fan clutch removal? Another way?

Wondering if there is another way of possible getting the fan clutch off or at least the fan off with out having to unscrew the clutch. I got my truck totaled a couple months ago and am in the process of tearing it down to see how bad the damage is and to see if I can get it to still run, and then decide from there what I want to do. The problem is the clutch housing looks like it's bent about 10 from the impact and I think this might be why I cant get it off. Anybody have any ideas on other ways you cant get it off?

Unfortunately no. If the fan is unbolted it can only come off the back of the clutch not the front. If its that bad just take a sawzall to it. Cut it off in front of the nut at the thinest spot. My condolences to your accident.
