Might just be easier to dig up a Zj pump and fan.

Will any ZJ pump and fan combo fit?

Off 4.0L for sure. Not sure about others.

Is it a mechanical fan on the Zj?

Why is it necessary to swap the fan? Won't the stock xj fans fit if I modify the battery tray? And will the stock electric fan fit?

People make the XJ fan fit, but the electric won't fit as well so you have just a little mechanical one. Some add an electric in front of the rad as a pusher. That partially blocks the air flow. I just found it simpler to go wit the bigger ZJ fan and clutch in my J10, which is kept quite cool with this setup.

I read that a Ford electric fan would work. Anyone try that?

I havent tried the ford fan...when I did the fuel injection swap on my 76 hornet I put a 20 inch electric fan in it....it works good. the fan never runs while moving but when stopped it runs all the time of course. I have allot of heat under the hood once I shut the car off....from the header I think thinking about getting the hood punched with some louvers for that tho.... :D

Vents on the side work too. The no cut way is to add shims to the hood bolts on the rear most only to tip the hood up and allow air out.

Will the stock Eagle fan work on the Zj water pump?

I'll have to take a look at my fan collection when I get home. I think 1 of them is reverse to the others.
