Does turning the fan nut mess up the engine timing? It took me a few tryiniesg - having to turn the nut may be two or three times to be able to get the fan nut off.
Initially I was trying to hold down the screw then tried to turn the 32mm wrench but couldn't find a good way to pivot. Finally I had to do a couple of whack on the wrench
and surprisingly the nut came off pretty easily.

When you turn the water pump, the entire engine also turn right? So does it anyway mess up the engine timing?
