I need to replace the fan clutch on my 1962 Coupe Deville. I removed the four bolts holding the clutch/fan assembly to the pulley, but it won't slide off. Does this procedure require a special tool?

It is only about a half inch stud into the clutch. Might need light tapping.

O.K. So there's no threads or pins or anything holding it on. I'll try using a hammer this evening. Thanks!

Hey! A little PB Blaster and some taps with a hammer did the trick! The clutch came right off. Thanks!
