Have to use 2 fan clutch wrenches to remove the fan and clutch assembly then remove the fan from clutch, its normal threads (left to loosen).

Can also go another way, you have 4 bolts that hold the fan and pulley bell to the water pump and in the center of all that, you have a big inch and a quarter hex that holds the clutch fan. Remove 2 of the 4 bolts. Replace them with 2 and a half inch bolts the same thread. Hold a pry bar between the 2 long bolts and crank the hex off
