Remove backplate and use a crankshaft locking tool.

if you dont have the tool handy at the moment just use a cigarette lighter instead; its about the size on one side so it will stop the engine from turning once you stick it in there.

hydro-lock the engine...with the muffler off, fill the cylinder with fuel or after run oil. You will be able to tighten the fan onto the engine and then just empty the cylinder out. Lubes as it locks. This is how I have always done it.
