Answer 1
After fan shroud is removed and BEFORE taking the belt off turn big nut on the fan clutch to the left to remove the fan. GM has regular old right hand threads! Hammer and long punch (or rod) works pretty good to move the nut to the LEFT! -
Answer 2
Rent proper tool if you do not have. -

Comment 1
BEST WAY I HAVE EVER TRIED! To loosen and tighten. (if available) If not the old fashion way will work when tools are limited and nothing close by! Country mechanicing! -
