If it's the same as my 1997 5.7, then you need a special wrench to fit the large, left handed thread nut that fastens it to the water pump. Most of these wrenches come as a set, with several sizes to fit Ford & Chevrolets, plus a fixture to hold the pulley still as you apply torque to the nut.

You can go out and buy a special fan clutch wrench set. Or just do it the shade tree way. Using a good heavy hammer and a long chiesel. position the chiesel on the fan clutch nut and smack the sucker. Make sure to leave the belt on and check to see if the clutch is left hand thread or not!
