Default Fan Clutch Tool

I made this crude tool out of frustration and available scrap. (Yes, I know I could buy something, but I made this in 30 mins. and it cost me nothing.)

It's 24" long and 3/8" thick, cut from a hunk of 7075 aluminum... a fairly stiff and hard material, unlike softer alloys.

Anyhow, It fits where a pipe, adjustable or regular combination wrench won't, due to awkward access, goofy angles and slim (tight) fit.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Cool

Now that's ingenuity! I like it! Another option is O'reillys and AutoZones tool loaner program. They have one. Put down a deposit and bring it back when you're done (hopefully not broken).

https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/r.../67065/4700276

They have all kinds of specialty tools they loan out, free of charge.
