Hi Guys,
Just a quick one.
To undo the clutch fan on an EA.....
If I stand at the front of the car and slip the spanner
down I turn it to the right, right??
Thanks

Yeah, I'm just not sure if its reverse thread looking from the
front of the fan or from the rear of the fan where the nut is.

Ford make an awesome tool i used the other day on mine, it goes over 2 of the bolts on the pulley, so when you put your wrench over it, you just push in opposite direction and it comes straight off, awesome.

But they are reverse thread.
