if ur reading this probably means ur about to do an XJ WP replacement for the 1st time.

If I did this again, pretty sure I would have had it all zipped up in ~4hrs.

however if you (or your mechanic) is doing it for the 1st time, its not quite as easy as the FSM, or even forum posts make out.

Worse than a VZ Commodore

Mine is a '96, so no complete FSM, but I squizzed the '95, which is different, and the '97

neither made mention of the following;

In order to loosen the PS bracket, one must remove a ~70mm long bolt in the side of the block. To do this you MUST drop the A/C-to-block bracket .

However the compressor shape prevents use of a socket.

Having used an open end spanner to work out the 4 bolts, pretty sure it would be quicker to drop the A/C compressor X 4 bolts, THEN the bracket X 4, using a socket.

Now the good news, you do NOT have to drop the PS bracket, just ease it forward ~15mm, and you can R&R the WP

I also spent at least 1hr cleaning up all the old hylomar, degrease, and file the thermostat flange (my thermostat failed open).

did allow the coolant to sit overnight to bleed out air, seemed to work good, now my Jeep runs @ 91C, up to 105C at protracted idle.

nothing went wrong, and I had to use hand tools, as access is tight

ps..if you forget to undo any of the 3 sets of bolts on the pulleys, just refit the belt

be aware you need to unscrew the metal pipe from the WP (for the heater), and install this in your new pump
