Rent one from your local FLAPS. Do you have a large enough adjustable wrench to fit the fan clutch nut?

I have no clue how much to rent. But if you have an adjustable for the nut, You can wedge a screwdriver across the smaller nuts to hold it.

I put a big adjustable wrench on it, left the serp belt on, and SMACKED the wrench with a hammer to break it loose. Then it unthreaded by hand.
