I have a 2000 4.6 F150 that has a couple of burned valves and I am in the process of removing the heads. I have hit a stump... The fan clutch is attached to the water pump pulley with one large nut. When I turn the nut the pulley just spins. How can I hold this pulley to remove the clutch? Also, I have read in one book that this clutch has left handed threads and I have read in another book that it has right handed threads. Which is correct?
Thank you much!
Rent the tool from a auto parts store. Works like a charm!!
And yes it's left to loosen it.

I rented the tool from O'Reilly's. Mine loosened in the normal (lefty) direction but you are right, both threads are out there. If you have a backwards threaded fan clutch it will say on the label on the fan shroud. If it doesn't say, it is normal direction.
