I just pulled one of our cars in to replace a water pump, we have owned the car for about 11 years and think itís still the original pump. Bought the car with 65,000 miles on it and now at 208,xxx.
Need to get the fan clutch and fan off first. Itís a 36mm nut with about 1/2Ē of clearance to get to it. My largest crescent was to thick, might be a call to OíReillys or autozone for a loaner tool.

Keep in mind a lot of those are left hand threaded.
Do they speak English on What?

If it's a GM clockwise rotation engine, the nut is left-hand thread, which ensures that the engine's rotation is always trying to tighten the nut. Put an open-end wrench on the nut and hit it with a hammer or dead blow hammer in the opposite direction and it should become loose. If not, give it a shot of PB Blaster and wait 15 minutes before trying again.
My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."

Heat is what worked for me

It is a GM based motor, but not to spec anymore. Itís a 4.6L in a Range Rover.

The motors are based on the old Buick 215 v8 motors from the late 60ís

All aluminum assembly. You would think that one would learn by now, itís our 2nd of three in the last 18 years. Had a 96 4.0 we bought in 2001 and just sold off 2 months ago, bought this one in 2008 and getting it ready to go for sale, then we have the new to us 2008 4.4 rover that had only 79,000 miles on it.
There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
