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...
