Ok. Following the book leads to failure. Period.
A strap-wrench is a complete waste of time. Period.
I bought the rubber strap-wrench from the local parts house. Followed the steps. Nothing I did worked. Nothing I did would keep the rubber strap from slipping on the pulley. No way to immobilize it with those tools.
Ended up calling a mobile-mechanic. He pulled out a chain-wrench/vice-grip combo, pipe-wrench, and a hammer.
1. He wrapped the chain-wrench/vice-grip combo around the pulley and braced its handle.
2. Put the pipe-wrench on the clutch-nut.
3. Hit the pipe-wrench handle and knocked the fan-clutch free. Standard thread: lefty-loosy, righty-tighty.
4. He said when you put it back on you don't have to go Super Man on it, just torque it up to German-specs (Guten-tight) and it'll finish torquing itself when you run the motor.
He was here for less than 15 minutes and most of that was digging around in his truck for his tools.
