Yikes, I can't quite remember the size off the top of my head. I want to say its 1 5/16" ill have to go look in my toolbox to be sure. Anyway, if you have access to a air hammer it'll make this job a snap. If not you'll need a wrench and a good hammer and patience.

A couple of options would be a strap wrench from sears to put around the pulley and use a adjustable wrench on the nut, or get some flat stock of metal and make a half arc drill two holes with same spacing as bolts on pulley. Make handle about 1 1/2 ft to 2ft long. http://www.sears.com/craftsman-2-pc-...p-00945570000P

I believe if you leave the serpentine belt on, place an adjustable wrench on the fan nut and tap/bang counter clock wise, it will release. I saw a video for replacing a water pump and thet's what they did.

X2 i am pretty sure that's how it would come off. that's how i have replaced them in other vehicles. the pulley may still slip with the belt on it esp if u hammer it but it would prob stay put for u.
when I did my water pump I just jammed an old screwdriver into one of the small holes on the pulley to hold it still and wacked the wrench holding the nut with a big *** hammer and it broke free. I figured I was replacing the pump anyway so i wasn't worried about damaging the pulley. Prob not the most conventional way but it was quick and it worked.
Okay I got the clutch fan wrench but i can't seem to get the bolt off. Do u put the wrench on the bolt and turn it counter clockwise if your facing the jeep? Do I also need a tool to hold the water pump pully?
