Marc carraway: are you supposed to take the belt off BEFORE you remove the big ass bolt? I thought the belt staying on helps prevent the pulley from moving while you're holding it with strap wrench or chain wrench or whatever you use? I haven't done this particular job before but am getting ready to in the next week or two. Anything else good to know before taking on this water pump replacement? I heard I should also do the timing chain/gears while stuff is out of the way. Mine has 245k.
Jody Leder: Funniest freaking tutorial ever. You have my respect.
S.L. Ayer: I did my water pump three days ago w/o removing the radiator. Also I removed the water pump while leaving the clutch fan in place. Then I simply removed the clutch while being on the bench. And this was without any special tools. I used a drill, bench vise and an 18" Cresent wrench. Now this would be only if you're replacing the water pump because you are going to drill a hole in the water pump and thus it would not be useful anymore. I lined up a spot on the back of the w/p that where if a hole was drilled I could penetrate a long bolt thru it and line up with one of the 4 holes on the pulley. By doing this it will keep the pulley from turning so that you can loosen the big clutch fan bolt. So you put the w/p in the bench vise to hold that from turning and then the long bolt, pin or phillips screwdriver thru the hole that you drilled on the back of the w/p thru one of the 4 holes on the pulley. You take the large cresent wrench and size it up with the clutch nut turn it counter clockwise until the long bolt engages the pulley to a halt (there will be some play before the pulley comes to a stop) at that point you're ready to give the cresent some muscle to break the nut. Worked for me, no fancy clutch removing tool, no strap tool etc.

John Poulos (JandP Restoration): ok I have a 2004 dodge ram 5.7 liter 1500 and they took the original fan blade ect. off and put a electric fan in and the fan has been shorting out on me and i had to change the water pump. We hard wired the fan to the battery andthen ran wires for a switch to be put on. How or WHATS the difference between the two? Im not able to find the blade and the nut to put back on so im going to get another electric fan and put that on. What do you think about that. I need HELP ASAP, THANKS JOHN
