pulling the fan clutch

hey all, thanks in advance for any help!

so the boyfriends water pump went out, and we are having an issue getting the fan clutch off. the wrench kit comes with a 40 mm and a 48 mm wrench, but the 40 is to small, and the 48 is too big. Any idea on what the size we need is?

Please don't use a pipe wrench on somethinglike that. They are designed for PIPE. If you don't want to buy the right size wrench then buy a 15" or 18" adjustable wrench. I have what i call a FORD wrench (Navy term). It is an adjustable wrench but the jaws are 90 degrees to the handle and the jaws open real wide. Either one of these options will work for you.

I changed the waterpump on my 6.0 the 1st month I had it (last Dec.). Anyway I went down to the local Harbor Freight and bought an 18 & 24 inch adjustable. I used the 18" but I had to unbolt the stator shroud for the fan to get at the shaft. My water pump hub had a hole to stick a big screw driver thru to hold it from turning. This was my "welcome to Ford Diesels" initiation and it was a learning experience. In only 6 short months, I also learned about the fabulous oil cooler design, EGR cooling design and the need for the coolant system filter that Ford skillfully neglected to "design in". I think this is why the water pump was on the way out when I bought it with 102K on the odometer.

GL!

I don't know the exact size of the flats on the shaft that you need to get to. I don't have any wrench that big. So that's why I used an adjustable wrench. Just buy an 18" adjustable and you will be fine. You will need it again on the truck so it will not be a waste of money.

If your just replacing it, i used an air chisel on the edge of the nut to get it started, but i was also replacing the water pump. it may destroy the water pump bearings. On my biddies we just used a piece of 1/4 in steel and ground our selves a wrench. over all BE CAREFUL!!!
