Fan Clutch Tool

Does anyone in the Boston or Framingham area, have a fan clutch tool I could use or borrow this evening? I am happy to pay a deposit, or I can just take it off there, and the car should be fine on the way home.

yikes, fine on the way home in 100 degree hot, hazy and humid weather with no fan? I'd be worried about that if I were you.. unless you live 1 mile away.. still.. sketchy.. I have one, but alas, I am in Fairhaven which is faaaar from you.

I wouldn't do it in that weather needless to say, as I don't want to be outside anyway.
I gave up and just ordered the tool from BavAuto. Received it today.

good, you'll be glad you have it now. I actually had a buddy of mine take his to his brother who attempted to make a duplicate set out of steel. worked like once, then the steel bent a bit and it was never the same, so I bought an aluminum set on ebay..
