I should mention, as an update, that I used the rawhide trick a few months after my posts above (when my cooling system blew up) and everything worked out perfectly!

I gotta' thank cn90 for this great idea.

Just for the record, notice Rexgo used dental floss for his cn90 fan clutch nut trick:
- Rexgo's '97 528 Cooling O'haul

An advantage of the rawhide is that it's easy on the hands; an advantage of the dental floss is that there's no need to tape it on.
