The loom comes complete ready to just clip into place and does not use capillary tubes. Looks factory and performs like factory.

My car is powered by FORD 5.8
To avoid breathing difficulties during hard acceleration, it is recommended that female passengers should remove all tight fitting undergarments before entering the vehicle!
oh great, now i know, i went to a million differnt places trying to find a thermoswitch that would operate my fans that did not require the gay capillary tube, and the davies craig one was all they had.
it cost $52 from repco, autobarn costs only about $45 but they were out of stock, and supercheap they are about $75!!!
i just got the switch and fans and did the wiring harness myself.
my AC is inop at the moment due to a stuffed compressor, i found where the wiring for the compressor clutch goes tonite, and when i get a new compressor i will wire it up to run the fan on the exhaust side of the car whenever the AC is on.
i will also 'stage' the fans in a little while, so the exhaust side fan comes on at just above operating temp, then if the temp still rises the second one comes on at say, 5-10 degrees above the first fans 'on' temp, but to do that i need another temp switch, and i dont want another bloody capillary tube in the radiator hose, i had enough trouble sealing one, bugger trying two!
EDxr8EBgt you have email!
(why run the fan on the exhaust side of the motor in preference to the intake side? to minimise the amount of hot air being blown around the pod filter, and keeping the air moving on that side of the engione bay should hopefully lower underbonnet temps a little, by blowing air past the exhaust and under the car i should be stopping a bit of heat soak from the exhaust)
oh yeah, i am getting a fiberglass shield and cold air duct made up to feed the pod with some nice cold air, i have probably lost hp over stock from just sitting the pod there in the hot air, but it makes a nice noise for the moment...
Slick, Quick and Fulliii SIK!!!

I can get new Genuine Holden/Ford/Audi/Land Rover/Honda parts cheap, PM me!
The EF fan assy has one fan which has an extra winding to acommodate the fan speed option. The EL fan assy has two fans which have both the same motors, it's twin speed mode is made possible through clever switching and bringing the two motors into series for low speed.
Yep, I have designed and sell a kit that make use of the full potential of the EF/ EL fan assy on an EA,EB,ED and what ever else you might want to put it on.
I developed it in the NorthWest of western Oz where the ambient temp is about 45degC average. I used to live up there and needed something reliable to cool my XR8.
