It will NOT harm the clutch fan and I've been removing them this way for yrs. The whack will break the thread lock and you will be able to spin the fan off. Installation is the reverse. Fan belt will provide sufficient pressure to tighen. Clutch fan nut designed to stay tight when operating due to direction of engine rotation.
Um well sometimes. I tried this method but could not break it free. No matter how hard I kept smacking the 32mm wrench. I got one of my friends at a CNC machine shop to fab me up a pully holder.
With the pully holder and 32mm wrench, I relized that there was some force to the nut and no way was I going to knock it free with a 3lb slugger as I was trying.
