Took the cab off today.

I spent about 9 hours yesterday flushing the coolant system, what I found was some of the gold slime that we often see in our oil coolers, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Now for today, a buddy and I started at around 9am disassembling everything so we could lift the cab, I printed out a procedure that I found on here and it was spot on. Everything went very well and we had the cab in the air at 4pm. We spent alot of time checking everything to make sure we didn't miss something. After all this work to get the cab off I do believe I am going to change the water pump and put a new fan clutch on. Does anyone know the procedure to remove the fan clutch? Thanks for all of the help that I have received on this forum, you guys are a wealth of knowledge and it is truly appreciated.

I can understand the head gaskets and studs. But the rest can be done with the cab down if hg wasnt being done.
