Flex-a-lite fan install newbie question

I'm planning to install the flex-a-lite #110 fan this weekend and I was just wondering if I will need to have to empty out my radiator since I have to disconnect the hose to install the temp probe. Can I get away by just letting some coolant spill and then refilling the overflow tank?

Another question is that how come everybody leaves the old fan clutch pulley on after this modification? Is it possible to remove the whole pulley and just get a shorter serpentine belt?

I'd say whether you empty it or not depends on which hose you're taking off. I am using the stock temp probe for the stock electric fan. Ran a wire from the positive lead of the stock fan to the aftermarket fans relay as my switch. When the stock fan comes on at 220F or when the AC compressor is on the both fans kick on. Otherwise it's quiet as anything.

Yes you can get rid of the clutch pulley and even reroute the original belt and it will fit without measuring and getting new belts. The reason most don't take it off is because it's a pain in the butt and it doesn't really have any drag. All the drag was in the fan.
