    Guys:
    I am about to attempt to put the cooling fan back on my car. Is there any tricks to this? Do I need to use locktite, torque the bolts to a certain spec? Is it a one person job?
    Thanks,
    Marvin

    Just put the bolts in, tighten them to a reasonable torque, and drive it.

    Using a lock washer and nut, hand tighten real snug with a closed combination wrench with no loctite.

    Lock washers here too. Put some pressure on the alternator belt so the pulley doesnt slip while tightening.
