Water pump pulley trick

Ok whats the trick on getting the fan off ive been here before but had to take pulley lose and pull fan cover pulley and fan out all together but that was no fun. The belt wont hold the pulley. That fan gets tight. i thought about a strap wrench. Thanks

I use a vise grip strap(actually chain) wrench to hold the pully while I used a wrench on the fan nut.

I keep an old serpentine belt for using like a strap wrench, I just wrapped it around the pulley a few times and hooked it on something stationary while I used a crescent wrench with cheater pipe to break it loose. I need to buy a strap wrench to make it easier next time.

I rented tools from autozone and those make it pretty easy just kills the knees to change it and i had to have a buddy hold one of the wrenches.
TOOLS: 100.00 on credit card but they give it back when you return them but like 10 bucks a day.
