Fan Clutch Pulley

Hey everyone, looks like my fan clutch pulley is starting to fail. I started my truck, went inside to wait for it to warm up and come back out and see under my truck, a spot of oil. Then I started to hear a whining and knocking. I pop the hood and I come to find out my fan is starting to knick my shroud. I look at the pulley and it is wobbling, also there is oil on my hood and surrounding piping/block so that led my to believe the bearing in the fan clutch pulley is going out, that also explains why there is oil on the ground. My question is, what exactly is my problem? Is that considered a pulley? I called Ford dealership and the guy I spoke with said it was my fan clutch? Is it not a pulley? He also said my water pump could be going out. I can get some pictures if needed. Thank you.

It looks like I am looking for a new water pump pulley. Is this correct?

The pulley itself is just a chuck of metal that bolts to the fan clutch. Nothing really to go bad with it. The fan clutch is a separate piece and that could be bad, as well as the possibility of the pump itself going bad (although it usually would leak coolant if the bearing goes causing a significant wobble). Cheers!

Ah okay, that must have been dirty coolant then. I didn't take the liberty of smelling it or anything. If the pump goes bad it causes a bad wobble then? That must be what it is. Thank you for your reply!
