The right answer is to go to autozone and rent,,, Yes I said rent the right wrench set that is flat and is carried at all autozones. When you are finished using it, just return it back to Autozone for a full refund. Yup that is how their rental works. It becomes free.
usally with a 1&1/2 " wrench,but some are left hand thread - but some need a blunt chizel 2 tap on the edge of the nut.& a LARGE pair of channel locks.
I have the same problem I Knew the nut turns counter clockwise. How do you hold the Fan Pulley to break the nut loose? Is there a special tool? where can i get one? I tried reinstalling the serpentine belt an add pressure to the belt to hold the pulley to break the nut. this did not work.
I watched the mechanic change the water pump on my 94 jgc and he use a special spanner for the nut and to hold the mount under the pully (pulley may be held on this bracket with 4 bolts or may be moulded to the shaft). The new pump had the pulley mounted to the shaft so he use a very large channel lock, but I dont wee why you can't use a chain or strap wrench around the pulley to hold it. just be careful not to put too much pressure on it and mar the surface or put it out of round. PS the repair including a new delco pump only cost me $300 CAD so shop around and you may find it is not worth the aggravation of doing it yourself
it can be done by using the correct (need not be exact) sized open end wrench and a section of pipe (or other solid object). with the wrench on the fan nut, strike the end of the wrench in the direction that you want to turn. combined with the force of the serpentine belt wrapped around the pulley and the tensioner, there will be an impact effect on the nut and the nut will break free -- without damaging the belt. it should only take 4-5 really good hits. use the same method for tightening.
remove the bolt in the center with a 10mm,pry out the outer piece of the clutch,remove the snap ring from behind it and the pulley will slide off with some prying and soft hammering. its pretty easy.
remove the bolts holding it to the water pump pulley, then wiggle the fan out under neath the radiator hose ( or take it off if you like) there will be 4 bolts on the front of the fan holding on the fan clutch. good luck!

According to the Service manual for that year you need to remove the compressor shaft bolt. A band-type oil filter wrench may be used to hold the assembly still.

Without an impact, you will need to hold the the pulley to keep it from turning as you remove the pulley. Be careful not to break the fins on the pulley if you do not use an impact.
