Re: Engine fan
I've never seen it done but theoretically if you connect the high pressure inlet hose to the high pressure outlet hose at the bottom of the fan motor it should work. It might throw a code though.

Re: Engine fan
You can also buy the pressure hose from a 99-00 with the mechanical fan, that will run from the pump straight to the steering gear. The only thing I dont know about is what unplugging the fan solenoid will do, might throw a code like cheapjeep said. I have heard of hydraulic fan jeeps being converted back to mechanical, but going to electric shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Re: Engine fan
You could just remove the solenoid from the fan assy and keep it connected (just fix it to some place with tywraps or so) to prevent the check engine light come on all the time.

Thanks for your help guys, as summer is on its way down here it would be good to have it sorted out without having to worry about overheating.:thumbsup:

Re: Engine fan
