You would really be fine to start your own thread on this instead of digging up a really REALLY old one.
Anyways, you need a fan clutch tool to take off the REVERSE THREADED nut holding on the fan clutch to the threads on the water pump. Remove the screws holding the upper fan shroud, take the fan off, remove the serpentine belt, drain cooling system, remove water pump, clean gasket off of block, install new tasket, torque bolts, reassemble reverse of removal.
