98 Service Manual - cooling system question

Evening all,

Unfortunately I cannot find what I need in my 1997 factory service manual or parts guide, so I'd like to know if the information appears in the 1998 manual before I go out and spend money on it.

As you may have read from one of my earlier posts I'm about to swap out the clutch fan on my 5.2L 1997 ZJ. I bought a fan and shroud from a 98 ZJ 5.9L.

I'd like to see if the 1998 service manual shows the wiring diagram for the electric fan as well as fitment/placement of the thermal sensor, relays and such. I'm assuming since the 5.9 shipped with an electric fan that the information must appear in the FSM...but amazingly when I looked at a 1998 ZJ parts guide, the e-fan isn't even listed...so now I'm not so sure.

If you have a 1998 FSM, could you please let me know if the electric fan install and wiring is covered? I'd really appreciate it. That way I can know whether or not I should pick up a copy of the 98 FSM.

As an aside...I did read about the Taurus Electric Fan Conversion but I'm more interested in precisely how the factory wired the stock 5.9L ZJ e-fan.

Kind regards,

Joe, The install and description of operation is covered, and wiring diagram.
Instead of buyingthe complete manual, you could purchase a subscription from alldata.com and print them.
I could also mail some copies, PM me if you want.

Dang Joe, you do the coolest stuff!
I have been looking at putting some 5.9 bits and pieces on my Jeep as well. So if you were to document and post up the conversion, I would really appreciate you doing all the work!

Thank you Warren,

I'm definitely planning to document these conversions and share them with the forum. Expect to see some stuff from me between now and March as I find the time to do the work.

The only problem folks might have is finding the 5.9 parts...I wrote to shops and salvage yards all over the country looking for 5.9 parts. It was over two months before I found the louvers, and another month-and-a-half to find the fan and shroud. But the cost savings over buying the items from the factory was huge. For the $400 factory louvers I paid $91 on eBay. And for the $270 fan with no shroud I paid $115 on eBay and got the shroud too.

But it's worth the wait. I read so many interesting and oftentimes ingenious solutions using non-Jeep parts. But then I thought well hell Jeep made a vehicle with the parts that I need....all I have to do is find the parts. Why rack my brains trying to fit a Taurus efan to a Jeep radiator--wondering how well it will work-- when I can get a fan and shroud made specifically for this application.

And my quest goes on....

By the way, Dave over a Davey's Jeeps in Ohio (DL2217@msn.com) has a 5.9 he's parting out right now as I write. He hasa complete set of door panels, the seats, tow hooks, rear diff, tranny, TC, engine parts, and the list goes on. Oh how badly I wanted the tranny and TC. But my wife would probably disown me. Which would mean no more . LOL
