If I go through with it I'll just do use a head gasket kit and a lower seal kit. As the bearings looked good I don't think I need to mess with the rotating assembly. I'll have the head gone...

I meant for the wiring side, does it leave the auxiliary fan functional on high and low settings or does it move all or part of that to the new fan? Sorry, I should have been more specific.

Sure, just unbolt the lower pipes from the manifolds. That's usually how we do it with diesel heads, just leave the manifolds and turbo attached, it's a lot easier to unbolt them on a bench.
