Well i dunno about the thermatic switch stuff because TBH i think that stuff is s**t.. I'm running my thermos in my EBII with the EL ECU as per factory specs and its bulletproof..

EF and EL's have different fans so just be aware of that when wiring up..

The factory setup has a 60amp fuse running straight from the alternator to the fans..

Hope this info is some help.

there is an 81 what?

yeah I can't change computers cos mine duel fuel so it's needs it's puter. The thermo switches I bought are these small discs that when the surface reaches a certain temp they open the circut.. I was gonna attach them to the radiator face.
what temp should it run at though?

(is there adjustible temp swich from repco?)

ok you guys use the Davies Craig adjustible thermal switch..

what I've got is an electronic thermal switch, it s a probe that mounts on a surface and when it reaches a specific temp it opens the circuit. I have a 70deg. and 90deg. switch.

so when the surface of the radiator gets to 90deg it will switch on the fans.

Is this a viable way of doing it? or am I being a dodgy backyard kiwi?

Use them both then

70º turns on the first one, 90º turns on the second one.

The fans are the same, just with different wiring. I have EF fans on my EB setup as EL fans..

Use this FM tech doc to sort it out.. it has info on wiring EF fans to EL/AU config! its not hard!
