Cooling fan

Any idea's on how to remove the frozen on cooling fan? I have tried heat, chisel both ways, air hammer no luck. Do I have to pull water pump?

Is it reverse threaded? Could that be your problem?

I used a pipe wrench on the large nut behind the fan, put a big screwdriver in one of the holes in the waterpump pulley to keep it from turning. It should come loose, if I remember correctly the nut is right hand threads.

The fan clutch is not reverse threaded (aka left hand threads)

I used a pipe wrench with a extension pipe on the handle to get more leverage.

cooling fan

I started second guessing myself when told it is reverse thread. Thanks to sinner for clarification. Took boss advise with pipe wrench and pipe for leverage finally freed it up. Thanks to all for the help
