Ther E.L fan shroud fits straight in..The AU is narrower and the pick up point to attach radiator is all wrong...We fitted a BMW thermo switch to activate relay..I'll find part # ..Switch cost $27.00

Graeme,
does that fan switch operate the fans (1 on low - 2 on low - 2 on high) like the standard computer does - or just give 1 setting? I am interested in doing this on my NC.

IM INTERESTED IN KNOWING IF YOU CAN OVRIDE THE STANDARD COMPUTER, AND HAVE THEM FANS KICK IN EARLIER CAUSE MINE GETS MIGHTY HOT, AND THE FANS STILL DONT KICK INTO HIGH, ONLY WHEN THE AIR CON IS ON AND FAN SWITCH ON 4

hey John - hows that beast of yours goin??

My thermo's are not hooked into my EEC, and they go into the different speeds depending on the temp..

well - that was before I killed a temp sensor, and then rigged it so they are always on high.. (I will fix it when I find a new sensor)

As your car came with thermo's standard, it might be more difficult to run them seperatly... maybe speak to BPT in perth.

Where did you guys wind up tapping in your thermo switches?

At the thermostat housing? Did you just drill and tap it in there, or is there a better and easier way to get temp switch sorted?

Cheers,

Phil

XR8Chic - I like the sound of your car better.......wanna swap?

Ride: EDV8 Fairmont

Location: perth
WA, Australia

In my EDV8 Fairmont I tapped one sensor in top of thermostat housing and the other at RH rear of lower intake manifold.

That way first sensor cuts in one fan when reaches correct temp & if temp keeps rising the other sensor cuts in the other fan.

Also if climate control Air Con Compressor cuts in one fan will always work.

Uses 5 relays.

When temp here in Perth went 40+ the temp guage only just got over the first letter of normal.

The wiring loom & sensors ( sensors are out of toyota) supplied by Barry Battens of BPT
http://www.norcom.net.au/~bpt/products.htm.

IT is worth doing properly- hence around $300 for the loom - might seem exxy but trust me it is worthwhile.

Installed aftermarket Twin EL Thermos from SSS Autos $180.

The alternator just copes with both fans + max air con fan + high beam.

Am going to rewind alternator for more Amps. I think ED only 95A but EL 110A.

Am open to any ideas on this.

Richie
