Changed the fan clutch today...

Well, the fan clutch in the ranger decided to let the fan wobble all around and almost get the radiator. Instead of letting ford do it, I took care of it.

I have heard the horror stories from members past, but I just put the wrench on it and nailed it with a hammer and it spun right off.

Also, don't go to ford to get a fan clutch, they want nearly 130 bux for one and the same one at autozone is 45! I mean the SAME one.
