84 GL Turbo How to Fan Clutch

Recommended Posts

Fan Clutch seems to be shot.  How do the four bolts to the water pump come out  ??   No room to get wrench at them.

Remove radiator, alternator, take out engine  ??

 

Bruised hands need to know  !!

yeah we can normaly get it done by pulling the rad and then you can put on two electric fans if you want

I use a pair of long handled pipe wrench or channel locks to hold the shaft of the fan, and a 10m box end wrench to work the nuts loose. Remove the four at the back of the fan, not the ones buried in the fins the front. A 22m box end will also hold the fan shaft, just make sure to grab the flattened sections and not the rounded parts of the shaft!
