Use a chain wrench on the pulley. Just make sure the grip is correct for the direction of removal.

I understand that the 7 blade fan is not manufactured any more. I don't really care if it is new I would just like to know what numbers are on it or a quick way to identify it so I can grab it if it is the real McCoy. I know a few of you have posted they have one , can anyone post what numbers are on it or a way to quicly identify it . I have seen a few 7 blades for sale for a Wrangler over time but don't know if it is the right one .

So....if temps are a constant issue, why not drop to a lower temp thermostat?
I have an aluminum radiator as well... Are you not using a shroud at all?
How is it working for you?

Why did you upgrade with an engine powered fan and not electric? Cooling system is my next upgrade so this is research..

Most of the guys with Electric fans on TJ's don't like them.They do not move as much air as an engine driven fan does and overheating @ slow speeds becomes a problem.

find anything? I drove over 800 miles this weekend, much of it in the mountains & turning over 3000rpms...the Explorer 9-blade + Hayden 2793 was giving bad squeeling, just like the Hayden 2791 clutch + stock 5-blade. It's burning the belt up. The "Severe Duty" just seems like too much resistance for those of us that run above 3000rpms often. I'm just going back to the stock clutch & 5-blade for now...the overheating/heat soaking at idle is getting to me - coolant temps were up to 234 at 13,800 ft this weekend...stock gauge showed a fuzz over 210...and it wasn't 50 ambient....not cool. I walked through the junkyard last weekend...I noticed a lot of vehicles had engine driven puller fans, and pusher electric fans in front of the A/C condenser. That may be another alternative.

Yeah after running the Torq Flo Severe Duty fan clutch it pretty much has toasted my new belt. I went with the 2791 and the 5 blade for a test and I think it's only squealing because my belt is messed up from the Torq Flo. It's even squealing with the stock clutch and fan now so I know for sure my belt is toast. I'm going to put my OEM spare back on and see if I can exchange my Dayco belt at Auto Zone with another one since it has a warranty.

Before I tried the Torq Flo Severe Duty clutch the belt was perfect with the 2793 and it never squealed.
