Re: Electric Fan Conversion

Im doing this on mine, but using an automotive 82*C fan switch, saves the expensive of a dedicated control box.

Re: Electric Fan Conversion

heres a handy tip for all the refidgeration engineers out there, mate of mine used a controller thingy from a fridge, to give him a digital readout in the cab of what the temp is and when the fan cuts out - works really well and looks cool (no pun intended!)



Works with something called a PT100 sensor in the bottom hose - whatever that is!

cheers

Re: Electric Fan Conversion

On a similar note:

my electric fan comes on,apparently for no reason. guage sits at 1/3 up (thermostat open temp), as always. Air-con off, driving carefully in this weather, mostly on by-roads. Add this to my erratic heater temperature, as mentioned in earlier posts, could the two be linked??

Any ideas

Re: Electric Fan Conversion

Could be a sticky thermostat.

Re: Electric Fan Conversion

If so why doesn't the temp guage move. Would be something to do with its position on the engine relative to the thermostat.

Re: Electric Fan Conversion

Yes old post resurrection i know but i've been thinking about this for a while. Today i had a Kenlowe fan fitted, early days yet but feels better already.

Seems more responsive as the viscous coupling is gone so no drag, and already showing slight mpg improvement
