Waterpump?

Ok i noticed my waterpump was leaking, so i got a new one here. But i was wondering about removing the fan. Which way is the nut threaded on there, right hand or left hand threads. Would like to know before i mess something up.

Should be left hand thread. If you dont have the Ford fan wrenchs....gonna have to use a BIG wrench, or a big adjustable to put on the fan hub/nut itself, and hold the fan pully in place....wedge a big screw driver aganist it. Good Luck. There not the easiest to break loose.

Another trick is to use a air chisel, and hit the edge of the nut on the down stroke and she will spin right off. BTW Most auto stores will loan you the tools for FREE or a small fee.

The fan nut is a 1 7/8" and the fan is left handed thread.

Ok now im wondering, which end of the nut is treaded. I guess i'm bascially asking, which way would i turn the nut toward the driver or passenger side of the truck.

The nut will stay attached to the fan and +1 for the air chisel. Makes life ten times easier if you do it correctly 2 or 3 quick taps with the gun and it should be loose.
