cooling fan thermostat

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/DER-16749/

i personally have this on a truck and love it. Ive got it screwed directly into one of the water jackets on the block. I like it the best because of the fact that its adjustable. They also have a radiator probe type but has the same electronics. Good luck!

if that doesn't load the site correctly, then just go to summit and type derale 16749, the best part is its only 43 bucks so not killer on the wallet!

Fan Controllers

What type Fan/Fans are you using, Single/Dual speed etc..?

I've been using this for a while > http://www.summitracing.com/parts/FLX-31165/ fancier & pricier.
Has a Start Delay, A/C kickin, & Variable Speed Control.

The PWM controllers are very nice, soft start & infinetly control the speed & load 10-100% but, more $$.

Basic Single & Dual Diagrams;
