Fan clutch removal... no 'big nut' visible...

So being winter here in Michigan I figure I could replace the fan clutch in my 1996 s10. 2.2 4 banger 5 speed manual. I pulled the fan shroud and looking down at the fan there should be a large nut just in front of the pulley that is used to loosen the fan clutch. I'm not seeing it, or feeling it. Where the shaft widens near the waterpump pulley it feels pretty smooth and round. Do I put vise grips on the fan shaft to remove the existing fan clutch? Supposedly these are often on super tight, and considering it's 18 years old and this is salty Michigan... I'm sure it's on there pretty well. Any ideas?
