Are you having to put everything back together each day so you can drive it?

That would be using a chisel to get the pully off the peice of rusted metal so that you can create a gap in order to get the removal tool behind the pully and over the screws. You need to loosen the 4 bolts, then pull out the pully, then get the tool behind there.

I used a long flat screwdriver and a hammer, started from underneath my truck and then finished off from the top. Finally the pully broke free from the rust.

I'll provide pics real soon

I've heard of guys whacking the fan shaft with a chisel to loosen it. I have never mastered that.
