Need help with water pump

Ok so I'll start by saying I'm not very mechanical. Prior to this I've changed shocks on my Bronco, oil on jeep, and belt on jeep.
So please feel free to use baby words and pictures.

Where I am at: drained radiator. Removed belt. Rented tool from auto store to re

To remove fan but the but spins. I'm thinking I need to put the belt back on. Should I have removed fan before belt?

I got a prybar and blocked the fan from spinning. If you put the belt back on it would be easier for you but it's not really necessary. Find a stick right to left work at some links and use it to block the fan from spinning but make sure you don't damage anything

Rent or buy a strap wrench. Put the strap wrench around the fan pulley and use a big crescent wrench to remove the fan. Once it breaks loose, you should be able to put the strap wrench down and hold the pulley still with your hand and work the fan off. Make sure to not lay the fan down and keep it vertical.

I added the belt back on. Pulley still moving. I can stop the fan blade but the pulley keeps moving.

Strap wrench or jam something between the blades like a breaker bar or 2x4 like the other guys said.

You can put a wrench on the fan shaft and give the wrench a couple of smacks with a hammer in the right direction while holding the fan and it will come loose.It just needs shocked loose.

There should be several tools in the kit, one of them should fit around 2 of the bolts on the pulley so you can loosen the big fan bolt.
