I'm aware of that. It just seemed to me that it wasn't getting enough of a grip on the pump housing as it appeared to be bottomming out after about 1 - 1 & 1/2 turns. Given what I've since read that was probably incorrect & if I'd forced it with a spanner it would have went in some more, but I was afraid of it being cross-threaded. As it was, once I'd cleaned up the threads I was able to screw it in by hand & I was much happier with that.

Andrew, thanks for posting your experience with this.
I just went through the same thing here with my 2002 WJ. I ended up having to cut off a small ring from the nut as well.

Glad to hear it helped Scott. Although, when you pay £100 for a part you shouldn't have to go to such lengths to make it fit.

Just did this yesterday! Removed the top radiator hose and the airbox and everything went smoothly. Took about 1 hour including the reassembly of the removed parts.

Edit: Autozone had the high pressure hose for about $30 and it was a perfect match.
