HowTo: make you own fan clutch tool for M60

For removing the visco clutch fan you normally need a 32mm open wrench as long as possible, and the holder for the pulley. While it is easy to make such a holder for the M30 and the M70 as the bolts on the pulley stick nicely out, you need some bushes for the M60 as the pulley has a different design, as on this the bolts do not stick out so much. Here the drawing

In case you have the standard holder and you cannot get a grip on the M60 pulley on the screws with your tool, remove 2 bolts, add some thick washers onto the bolts and screw them in again, then the tool will also fit.

Here you can see the pulley and details with another method in

For the M70 and M30 engine I have another idea shown on my website, see under upgrades/funstuff:
