Angry 84 cj7 clutch fan?

i'm switching from the two core to a three core radiator and i have to put a different fan on to make room, except i can't get my fan off.
i've taken off the four nuts that hold the silver piece to the blue spinning thing that the belts are attached to and have been soaking everything with liquid wrench and it's not moving.
anyone have any tips or tricks or secrets?
anyone in the vancouver area that may be able to stop by and get it off for me?
i've got $20.00 and a zip tie if someone can get it off.

Its just stuck or rusted on to the spud in the center. Try wedging a small screwdriver or prybar in between the waterpump pully and the fan spacer and it should just pop right off
