Switches- RPM and Thermatic

Can anyone tell me where i can get an RPM switch (to engage BBM) and a thermatic switch (to engage thermo fans). I'm in perth. Any idea what they are worth?

Re: Switches- RPM and Thermatic

as mongrelEB said - you can get a rpm switch as a kit for like $30 i think, and you can get a thermo switch from repco, you just gotta find out what temps you want it to work at - go to a library, with luck they should have some gregories manuals there, look through the ones that are for 1980s/1970 front wheel drive cars, they should all have thermoswitches, just look for one with the temp you want, then go to repco and get it...

Re: Switches- RPM and Thermatic

Can you hook up an EL ECU to a pre smartlock EA ECU though. If not how much do you want for the switch kits (9psi EB)?

Re: Switches- RPM and Thermatic

You can, but you have to install Smartlock as well. Bit of rewiring and I don't think S1 can be done.
