Electric thermos again

What happened to all those people who were putting ef/el electric thermos on instead of the clutch fans?

I just want to know how they are originally controlled on ef/el's and how to adapt them to my ED Ghia 8.

Pics, tips please?

I have spoken to EDxr8EBgt and he is going to fit some El fans to my EB XR8 as soon as he fines some good ones from a wrecker.

Another possibility is the use of an EEC-Tuner to enable the original thermofan driver within the EEC.
I have done this on my XE ute using a U.S.(A3M1) EECIV but the hardware is the same as the aussie EEC's so it should be a doable prospect.
It just enables Pin 41 which is a low side drive to the relay/s for your fans. That way you have no extra sensors etc and you just change the fan turn on temp and hysteresis with a laptop.

Actually I'll plug in an Aussie EEC and try it out.

Pete.

You can just use an after market ajustable thermostatic switch like that used with the Craig Davis and similar aftermarket fans; the switch can be purchased seperately from places like Repco. You can, and it is wise to also add a relay so they switch on when the air con compressors is on.

Hi there Waks and all.

Just thought I would let everyone know that I am still doing thermofan kits to suit EA up to ED, 6cyl or V8.
I now have full instructions and parts listing for the mod.
I can email anyone some information if they are interested in the kit or parts thereof.
It can be cheaper if you can get a set of thermofans for $250.00 bucks or cheaper then use the rest of the kit to control them properly.

Regards, Barry.

Davies Craig do a thermal switch kit for about $40. I have run one for a couple of years now without a problem. It is easy to install, and you can have the fans come on at any temp.
