BPD Water pump + fan stator removal = awesome

Ive had the BPD water pump sitting on my bench in my shop for a couple weeks. Finally found some time today to install it. Also helped there was no snow on the roads. Ever since I bought my Wrangler, the truck has become driveway queen during crappy weather. I hate salt, and people cant drive!

Ive never removed the fan stator for anything before, so this was a first for me.
Thanks to Lilpooh for his water pump write up, and Tuscany for his words on the trans cooler lines. Both were a big help.







It really is a shame that it is completely hidden. Its a piece of quality machining. Love their products.

And wouldnt you know it, it started snowing when I was ready to leave. Just my luck.





It really is crazy how much more room you have in the engine bay when you ditch the stator. Glad to chuck that thing in the dumpster.

Did you notice any difference in coolant temps or fan clutch engaugement? My guess would be no...ive spoken with a few others that have done that...id be very curious to see if theres any difference while towing. Im sure some engineer somewhere spent hours and hours designing that stator lol...then again the same could be said about the egr cooler too. Im sure theres no issues unloaded...espcially when its cold enough to snow out...but i wonder if that might cause the fan to engage more often when under a heavy load in the middle of summer at low vehicle speeds.

See this thread:
Prepping for a 3000 mile round trip- did I get it all??

I will find out soon enough.
The boat I am towing down is 4000lbs, trailer is about 1000lbs, plus two guys in the truck, plus sh!t ton of fishing tackle. Probably 1000lbs of gear and extra tools parts etc.

And if nothing else, this setup will be tested this summer.
By April 15th, my truck pretty much stays hooked to a trailer towing boats all over.
I frequently tow my boat 100-500 mile round trip during the summer when the the fish are biting.

My stator is off as well and have been in 100+ degree temps and could not see a difference in engine temps. I agree, taking that stator off is a wise thing to do for clearing up the engine bay.... Changing a belt is a breeze now

I've had the BPD water pump for a couple years. Temps don't change. The only big thing with the BPD pump is its fins. The stock fins are plastic and can wear and break off. Other than that there is no other improvement.

All you guys who are ditching your stators send me the bolts that attach it to the engine! i'll put them to good use on trucks that are missing bolts. You can't get these unless you buy a new stator and it irrates the hell out of me.

I have seen a few now that eat up fan clutch wiring from a broken or missing stator. It's one piece, while it can be a nuisance, I wouldn't remove completely.

^^^ of course the fan clutch wiring is less of an issue if you ditch the fan clutch and go to electric fans lol.

My fan stator has been removed or a very long time. Never had an issue with the wiring! What kind of issues can you have?

the fan can cut the wire... I know lol it happened to me. Luckily I was able to save it as it just cut the molex plug connector and not the harness part to the stator, i spliced in a new plug and was good to go. I repositioned the wire so this wont happen again.
