A blown head gasket is about the only way to get water into the oil, it should be coolant though. If you are running only water in your radiator you have probably been experiencing some leakage or overheating issues and replaced the coolant with water as an emergency measure. ( plain water will do damage to your aluminum engine parts )

How do you get the fan off of the water pump on a 96 Chevy van 57L?

You're probably finding that the shaft the collar nut is on spins when you try to remove it. There are several tricks. If the unit is still on - leaving the belt on for tension, heat the collar nut with a torch and rap your open end wrench with a hammer. this should loosen it rather easy. If the unit is apart, and your replacing the water pump, lock up the pump impellor, heat the collar nut and rap your open end wrench with a hammer. CAREFUL WITH THE TORCH. Good Luck.
