HELP!!! WATER PUMP PROBLEM

My water pump is leaking a little bit right now. I expect it is going out so i am going to change it. I found a very helpful video by MAINTAIN about removal and installation of a new water pump. Everything was going smooth until it came to the fan removal. That stupid thing would not budge. The Clutch wrenches i got from AutoZone proved to be worthless in my mind because all they did was slip off the nut. then i got another kit from Advanced and there's were better but the fan nut still would not move. The nut is messed up now from those piece of **** wrenches and now i am in a bind. Any suggestions on getting the fan off? I really don't want to take it to the shop and get bent over with fees. If i can get that nut of i would not have any problems. Thanks for any suggestions.

Do you have an way to heat it. Hopefully it's not torn up so bad that with a little heat, fan clutch wrench, and a hammer that u can't get it off. It will pay to have a helper around when taking the fan clutch off too. Make sure youa re going the right way as well. Good luck man.

If you can get a long punch, I use old tie rod shaft about 24" long, and smack the flat on the fan in the direction to remove it sometimes it will come loose.

i have no heat to put on it. I honestly don't know if the nut will even hold anymore. I might try to get a big crescent wrench on there. Those clutch wrenches just didn't seem like they were the right size to get it off. I had a helper and we had them on correctly but the nut to gave away. all i have gotten are some mangled hands right now.

So the fan and pulley will still be attached when i take off the pump? I guess i would just take of all the mounting screws and hoses and it should come right off with the fan attached. Do you think it would be harderer to get the fan off with it off the truck. Because this thing really did not want to move.
