cooling fan and stator removal

Howdy all, does anyone know whether the fan and stator can be extracted as a single unit, ie, removal of the stator bolts and lift it out, I've a 2004 f250 6.0l, the pully on the a/c compressor is seized, so I have to pull it out. BTW, until I figured out the problem, I could not get the engine to turn over fast enough to start it, after replacing battery, starter, re lugging all connections, checking ICp, and FICM etc..., it occurred to me that perhaps there was some sort of resistance- removerd the belt and she fired up. In any event, seems that the best way to get at the compressor is to remover the fan/stator asseembly, so any suggestions or do I have to follow the shop manual - remove fan first then stator assembly.

To remove the fan stick a large pry bar in one of the 4 slots on the water pump/fan pulley and lay it over to the passenger side. Then get a 24" pipe wrench with the jaw open to the passenger side of the truck and slide it over the big 2" nut and use a large hammer and give the handle of the pipe wrench a few good wacks. Once it's broken loose than you can spin the fan off by hand then remove the plastic stator housing and make sure to remove the wiring harness for the FSS/Clutch.
