Whats the power gauge like with your headlights on & fans running?
In my EB the power gauge does drop about 3 bars.

Yep will do that soon, i will be doing that in the next day or so and will show how its done

what happens is when the temp gets to the point i set the Davies Craig thermo switch to cut in it will run both fans at the same time, but when the car is using the aircon only 1 fan will cut in . again when the temp gets high both fans will run to help cool it down and if your still using the air con only 1 fan will shut down, and the one connected to the air con will stay on as long as you are using the aircon.

But when your not using the aircon Both fans will be used when the temp gets high

This is the diagram I am using. its easy to understand

for the ignition wire i ran it from the Davies Craig switch up to the firewall ran it along the back of the firewall to the drivers side, then i feed that wire in the clutch cable hole and into the car.

I used a multi meter under the dash to find a wire that was live when the car is in ACC or started that the trigger wire, didn’t use the scotch locks they are s**t, strip the wire and twists and solder them.

for the aircon wire that’s very easy, if you look at the aircon comp you will see just 1 wire i think its black, it goes up and has a plug were it plugs into your engines wiring harness, what you do is on the harness side of the plug not the compressor side strip part of the wire and add the aircon wire to it solder and tape up and your done.
