On my VG30, the fan and clutch are attached to the water pump pully with the aftermentioned 4 studs. I just simply undid the 4 nuts, and the fan practically fell off. after that the water pump pully was just sitting loose on the studs (the fan clutch held the pully in place essentially), and was very easy to remove.
Maybe just hit the whole area with PB blaster?
