Default Replacing Water Pump (Question) How do I remove fan from waterpump pulley

Need to replace waterpump on my '98 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Magnum V8 5.9L Quad-cab. I have already removed Radiator skirt. (I was able to remove skirt with fan still attached to waterpump pulley).
Next (after I empty radiator fluid) I need to remove (unscrew/unbolt) fan from waterpump pulley.
Is there a special tool I need to hold the waterpump pulley steady so I can un-screw the fan? Should I just unbolt the waterpump from the engine block with fan still attached? I will still need to remove fan from old waterpump pulley to attach to new waterpump.
Looking forward to any reply.
