water pump 97 blazer

i am replacing the water pump on my 97 blazer 4.3L engine. my problem is trying to figure out how to remove the clutch fan. i have done this job in the past on other vehicles but none with a clutch fan. the shaft of the fan seems to go in to the pump it self.
i have removed the belt pulley from the pump and i can't find any type of release mechanism there. am i missing something? or should i have done something first?

You need a fan clutch puller--try where you are buying the waterpump--many places have loaner tools.

I agree. Autozone rents tools among other retailers.

thanks much for the info. i had checked in the only manual we had in the house (91' BMW) and it said theirs had left hand threads. i am glad i didn't try to wrench it off. I'll get the puller tommorrow. i've had enough today. thanks again
