no. you can get it in there. Upside down. Replace the waterpump studs with bolts. Take the motor off the fan shroud and cut down the nubs it sits on to gain 1/4 inch.

Another option is to go to the junkyard and grab a waterpump and pulley off of an XJ. Gives TONS of extra clearance.

Wht year XJ did you pull that from? I thought the XJ pumps had a different rotation/pump flow? I ask because I have both a taurus fan waiting to go in as well as an XJ parts car with a fresh water pump on it.....

It came off of a 93' XJ. Same rotation and since the pulley is flat you get lots of extra room.

does the 4.0L xj pump have a heater hose running to it on the pass side like the 4.2L do?

if im not mistaken for the heater one line goes to the t-stat housing, and i want to say one goes to the pump just like on my 4.2. if that is the case that would make e-fan instilation a LOT easier on my old carbed 6 cylinder

I'm not as familiar with the 4.2L but on my 93' 4.0L there is a metal hose that screws into the water pump on the XJ same as my 93' YJ pump was. It then connects to a rubber hose that goes to the heater. The XJ pump and YJ pump I had to compare were both from 93' 4.0L's and they are basically identical except for where the pulley bolts to the pump.

i guess i can go to the parts store and compare the 4.2 pump and the 4.0 pump.

i looked at the generic pictures and they both appear to be the same accept for the hub depth of the yj is a lot deeper.

maybe ill go to the junkyard and just pull on off since a water pump/pulley is only 5 bucks.
