I did take a video, but I look like a cheese ball, so I decline to post it.

Thanks guys. I kept thinking, there's no way this thing is going to start. I couldn't believe it when it turned over.

I think more people will care about the engine running than what you look like!

Ok, I got it. I had to convert it from the weird format my phone uses to something useable. Sorry the quality sucks.

I updated my to-do list in post #9. I think the most pressing thing at the moment is getting the radiator hoses figured out. The molded hoses from the Dodge won't work without kinking. I could put an elbow in each one to make it work, but I don't know if such a thing is available, I've never seen one. I'd rather it not look cobbled together under the hood, so I'd like to find a hose that would work.

After that, I have some maintenance stuff to do. I still have to fix the brake lines as well as address the brake pedal and switch. I think I'm going to take the grille back apart and paint it before it goes to it's final home.

When I damn well get to it.

I just wanted to save those in case I needed to add or rearrange the first posts.

I think I have the upper radiator hose figured out. Still working on the lower. I'm going to take some measurements and wonder around the parts store rack and see if I can make something work.

I'm not sure an electric fan is going to work. I have been looking at the Taurus fan. I like the idea of having the low speed thermostatically controlled, and a separate switch for high speed and completely off. I find conflicting reports on the depth of the fan. I have 4.25" between the radiator and the water pump pulley, and I don't think that's enough. I've read where others have used a ZJ 5.9 mechanical fan and the TJ 4.0 shroud. I have the Dodge 5.9 fan, and I can't tell if the ZJ fan is any different. My Dodge fan looked like it would interfere with the upper hose. I might take the fan shroud off my 2005 and see how it first with the Dodge fan on the V8.

I could be wrong but didn't all 9er zj's come with an electric fan?

I opened up a 98 ZJ FSM and it shows an electric fan on the 5.9 and a mech on the other two engines, but it also show a viscous fan drive (mechanical) for 5.2 and 5.9 engines. So there was an electric one on at least some of them.

The parts jockey at the big box store showed an electric on both the 5.2 and 5.9.
