no fan clutch wrenches :-( I did pick up a new pump at napa in Titusville FL. Course in my drive from there to a hotel I think my truck was completely out of water.
I topped it off before I left the napa, but I'm not feeling good about this at all now. it was only a minor leak from the weep hole but by the time I got here to this hotel it's pretty bad. Lets say no water in the lower rad hose bad. course the engine still starts and runs fine right now, and I filled it up with hot water from my hotel room, and ran in for a few minutes and have heat at the dash and seem to be getting some flow thru the radiator.
Just have to wonder if it may be too late and I pushed it to far trying to get to someplace reasonable safe to do this. The guys at Napa said I didn't want to be caught there after dark working on my truck :-/
Sucks that I am 1100 miles from my shop in albany, ny with a limited assortment of tools (mainly needing a ladder for the 6in lift) and in a days in parking lot outside the Kennedy Space Center waiting for the engine and the ambient air temp to cool so I might be able to work on this.
If there is anyone in the area of 3755 Cheney Highway in Titusville, FL and knows of an autozone where I could get the clutch tools please give me a call or stop by :-) Look for the Orange F250 with a 6in lift and its owner curled up in a fetal position under the engine.
