That is novel ! I would think you need to stick a lolly stick into the fan to counterhold it and then nip the nut up using a quarter inch drive deep socket, a dab of loctite might be a good idea, how you could measure torque on such a small fastening in such a location, I would set my wrist to 0.005 of a white knuckle :wink:
