    Help, need to get my stock fan off my 4.3!!!

    It's a 2000 4.3, I need to get the stock belt driven fan out so I can put my electric fan in. I got some tools from autozone but they don't look like anything I could use on the fan, 2 wrenches one 40mm and the other 48mm and then three double sided wrenches you turn with a 1/2 ratchet. I'm stuck here somebody help me!!!

    if i remember correctly you have a thread on fan, i can remember off the top of my head if it has reverse threads, but for some reason i dont think it does

    what i do is put a big adjustable wrench on the fan nut and then i use a large screwdrive and get leverage on two of the four pulley bolts

    works like a champ for me

    thanx man I'll have to try it tommorow

    Vent- went and got a new ABS sensor for the front wheel today, that SOB cost me $62. I'll be a little more carefully next time when I'm tying the rotor up on the frame so it doesn't fall and pull the wire out of the sensor!

    if your talking about taking the fan offa new blazer. u have to unbolt the fan b4 the pulley bolts. like Tippmann said about the fan nut being threaded. you have to take that off. changed one too many waterpumps on them things...
