How do I get the nut that holds the fan clutch to loosen. Been beating the hell out of it for 2 days now, I cant stop the shaft from spinning.
Do you
have the same problem?

The trick is securing the pump shaft and either turning the fan base clockwise or counterclockwise.
It should be in the repair manual, what to do.
The greatest idea would be to dump the stock 'finger/hand/arm chopper' and get a quality Zirgo fan.
I have installed a 3000 cfm 16' unit and it is just excellent.
Coupled with a thermostatic oil cooler you should have no cooling problems
