I'm swapping to a Jeep Cherokee drivetrain so that would be running Amy electric fan.

I'm using a ZJ waterpump and fan (centered like Eagle)

Looks like Chrysler LHS, Ford Taurus (Slimline fan), or some Subaru stuff is what I need to look for.

That's if it's cheaper than the ZJ waterpump/fan I'd need to find.

For the ZJ waterpump is it the stock engine one? Which way should it turn, clockwise or ccw?

I use to work for a company in which we manufactured fan blades among other things but they weren't for auto's. The important thing  to remember is that they are not all equal. The blades themselves are made at specified angles & the spiders that they attach to are also made at specified angles. This all helps determine the cfm. Also as a side note I remember back in the 50s-60s it was popular to install Old's & even Cadillac engines in 53' Studebakers. A common problem was overheating. The stock radiator wound up too far from the fan so an extra spacer was commonly used. But the real problem was that they were removing the radiator shroud.
