Exclamation Please respond as SOON as possible!!!

Hey guys and gals,
I am currently working on replacing my timing chain, cover, and water pump. I ordered parts and found out they are for a 5.2l after I had removed most of them. Since I have a 5.9l it turns out... I was wondering if the 5.2l cover would fit. I already back tracked the timing chain/sprocket set and that is compatible. I need to know about the cover!! Also does anyone know how to separate the crank pulley from the harmonic balancer. And while on that note. How to separate the fan clutch from the water pump pulley. It is not a bolt on pulley. It is a press on. Please respond as soon as possible if you can. The Truck is basically apart.


Thanks,

JohnDeerekid

Believe it or not the 3.9, the 5.2, and the 5.9 are interchangeable on the timing cover. I'm going to post this and then edit so you can read this while I'm editing

The fan is screwed onto the water pump Remove one of the 13mm bolts and put a screwdriver through the hole to keep it from spinning. Get a 1 1/4 open end wrench (I think) and spin it off TOWARDS the passenger's side (reverse thread). If you have the shroud off stick a piece of cardboard in there to protect the radiator.

Lastly. The 4 bolts hold the crank pulley to the harmonic balancer tap it with a hammer and watch it fall off. The balancer is held in by the big bolt in the middle and you'll need a harmonic balancer puller to get that off (cheap $20.00).

Anything else?

Did you get the fan off without any problems?

And the crank pulley?
