1999 S-10 Fan Clutch Sign In

I have a 1999 chevy S-10 with the 4300 V-6 Vortec motor. I'm trying to replace the waterpump. The problem is takeng the fan clutch off , do you have to unscrew the fan clutch from the waterpump before you take the four bolts out. Also which way would you turn it ?

Re: 1999 S-10 Fan Clutch Sign In

Yes, you must remove the fan clutch, first. Leave the serpentine belt in place. Using the correct wrench for the large nut, smack the end of the wrench very hard and quick (counter clockwise). There is a tool that is used to hold the pulley while you loosen the nut and is available at most parts stores. The large one fits around the bolts that hold the fan clutch to the pulley while the smaller one fits the large nut on the clutch, itself. Price: $25.00
Warranty:

Loren, Thanks for the information, they kinda leave some of the how do's out of the books. I've been trying to hammer that thing off for two days, and I can't get it to even budge. thanks again

Yes, you are right. They will tell you to remove this, or that. Just won't tell you how to remove this or that.Unsure

When you go to put it back together, before you put the belt on. If you hold the fan clutch on the pulley & spin the pulley backwards to start the threads instead of spinning the clutch assembly forwards, it makes it easier to start the threads....

Thanks Guys, Thats alot of good information, It has made this job alot easier. Now on to the next job (same S-10 ), It looks like the intake manifold is leaking next to the head on the drivers side. Is there anything else you guys can let me in on before I start would be great! Thanks again.

Mark the exact position of the distributor and rotor very carefully and don't let the engine move while it's out. It requires a tech2 scan tool to adjust that if you get it in wrong and you will have a constant check engine light.

It's not the timing that changes, it's the injector synch that changes.

Back to fan clutch for a moment: May take a different tool with an air hammer - they are a PITA sometimes,
