Radiator Fan Removal

I am trying to remove my radiator fan to replace it with an electric fan but am having a difficult time removing the fan and clutch assembly. Does any one know how to remove this, and give me some kind of instructions?
Thanks in advance for any help

Cigar101 - Can you give us more info on whats invloved? Was the nut super tight? I don't have a 36mm wrench. Would a flat wrench or a socket work best. Is it a right hand thread?

Thanks.

My fan and clutch were broken by a stick that floated in between the fan shroud and the fan,the dealer wanted 600.00 for the repair, I found this article and did ude a air chisel to crack the nut in 2.

www truckinweb.com and in the search box type in "electric horsepower"

You need a fan clutch wrench, otherwise it's a bastard.

Off hand, it's like a 37mm or something like that.

Go to any one of the auto parts stores, they have them.

Don't buy the Dodge tool, it's like $100+

You can get the exact same tool for about $12.

'12 Ram 3500 DRW - Garmon High Pressure 68RFE

Shut up and open your wallet! This whoopin' ain't gonna be free!

Threads are right hand and you need to borrow or buy a fan clutch tool. Nothing more than a real flat wrench. If you buy one, run a couple beads so it doesn't spread open. Also need to remove the shroud with it. Going to be a man job.

I found this.

Schley Products (SP 61200) 2 Pc. Universal Fan Clutch Wrench Set - SP 61200

One tool is to hold the clutch from spinning and the other is the wrench.

Is it worth the money?
