1999 GMC Safari Repair Question
How to remove a cooling fan so the water pump can be changed?
it's likely stuck/tight fit. you can try tap/hammering it a little to loosen.
You need to first un-thread the fan blade off and that should have been done while the pulley and belt were still in place to help hold it.

ok wait a second. what did the bolts hold on? just the pulley? is there a large nut on backside of fan on shaft? if so, that's what's holding it on. you can borrow tool to remove from chain auto supply store.
aha,i see wrench tech beat me to it!
