I made a pulley holding tool in about 10 minutes. About 16" long piece of flat steel and drilled 2 holes for 2 bolts 3" apart(on centre) from each other. Worked great from first try.

Good Video helped me with my 2002 Dodge Ram V6. I used a clutch pully holding tool and a pipe wrench. I had to remove the carb. air Intake.

victor hernandez says:

Don’t waste ur time this method does not work.

graham davidson says:

There are small holes in the pulley. I stuck a small punch in and let it stop the pulley from moving. Worked pretty good on a tight bolt

Software Bear says:

This was very helpful, but I have a question.

I am needing to replace the fan clutch on my 2007 Dodge Durango 5.7L Hemi. Currently sounds like a jet engine when it is fired up.

My question is this:

Several parts are available, some normal thread, some reverse. Is the 2007 a reverse thread? Or a normal thread? I am ordering the part online and would like to avoid needing to send it back and wait if possible (having one vehicle and two working adults with 4 kids is starting to get old).

Thank you in advance.

MrBigjay98 says:

What is max cooling and do I have it?

Jursaw says:

That fan clutch was already loose before, 5.7 im working on is super tight even with the proper fan clutch removal tools, propane torch, hammer and a long wrench. Still won't come off

Ernest Hin says:

how did you keep the water pump pulley from moving. does the nut need to be real tight? (the nut can only go so far right)?

MrSimba27 says:

where did you exactly put that 3/8 wrench?

Dmitry Belyaev says:

Great! How difficult is it to remove fan pulley? The bearing needs to be replaced.

fargeeks says:

I say

is there a reason why some fans have uneven fan blade spacing like this?

Ed Cuddy says:

bullcrap that nut was previously lose quit it…lol
