QLD has been boiling of late which I think has something to do with that big round Hot thing in the sky.
Anyway, the old BA 4.0 has been running a little hot, not extreme but getting up to 3/4 on the temp gauge a couple of times.The old girl would ping occasionally too, which is not a good thing to hear, especially on a Blown 4.0 running 10psi.
So I removed the standard thermostat put in a 82 degree version. This seems to have sorted out the high heat I was getting & the pinging has gone.

But I want adjust the Fan on-off settings to suit the 82 degree thermostat.
Anybody know what these settings are?
I only have One huge fan so I had a guess & changed it to come on at 95*deg & shut off at 85*deg & it seems to be OK but is there a better setting?

I check a lot of fords watching the temp with a scan tool for when the low speed fan will turn on, and it is around 100 deg and the gauge is at half.
