Question How to remove stuck fan clutch nut on 2001 GMC Sierra?

On my 01 Sierra, the nut going from the clutch to the pulley on for the fan is stuck. I have tried everything from letting PBR sit on it, to a crescent wrench and a hammer. Nothing i seem to do gets this damn thing loose.

Any help would be hot right about now!

You can also try bumping it with an air chisel. About the 2:30 mark
