What's the secret to removing the fan clutch?

First, thanks to member Earl43P for sending me the link to this thread:


That pretty much explains it except I can't get the fan clutch off the truck. The bolts on mine do not stick out the back far enough to hold with a screwdriver like is says in this thread.

I went down to Autozone and rented the "special tool" but I don't understand what it is supposed to attach to. There is no hex hub anywhere on the pulley and it looks like if the bolts were longer I could slip over the back of them but they won't catch on the special wrench.

Any help esp a photo from someone who knows how to do this would be greatly appreciated. It doesn't look hard if I can just get the fan off.
