As for blanking off, couldn't you just cut out a piece of sheet metal , put a gasket between it and the block and simply bolt it up like you would the water pump?

You now have no fan, but most of the electric water pump makers say you no longer need one (bearing in mind that they are mainly thinking about cars with better natural cooling air flow than the side rad setup).
You also need a much shorter alternator belt (which will wear out faster).
You could try simply removing the impeller from the pump, so you would still have the fan and a normal belt setup, but I don't know if the shaft would remain in place if you did this or how water tight it would be as I believe the impeller holds the shaft and seals in.

I also used it in a side mounted radiator setup. For this the impellar in the mechanical pump was machined off, but the rest of the internals were left so the mechanical fan could remain and so could the standard belt.
Due to a change of setup and space restrictions i'm back to the mechanical pump.
