Sorry, It takes a $40 tool to do this. The tool comes in two parts. One is a two prong tool with a slot at each end, this is where you connect it to the 4 bolts on the fan. The other is the wrench part. put this on the large nut behind the fan. Push and pull to loosen the fan nut. I got mine at advance auto.

The belt needs to be removed. The fan will have to be unbolted and removed, you may have to remove the fan shroud as well. The water pump can then be unbolted and changed.

The water pump on a Chevy Blazer 4.3l is on the front of the engine. The Fan and fan shroud will have to be removed to gain access.

If you look at the big fan on the front of the engine, The water pump is what the fan is bolted to.

You can tell where the water pump is located by finding where the mechanical fan is bolted to. If you want to change the water pump, the fan and fan shroud must be removed.
