electric fan temp switch g.m.

Hello all,
not sure if this question should be here or in the engine area..
I am installing an electric fan in my 71 c-10.. and tho. painless makes a kit, It's just a relay and a temp switch and wire..
looking for a temp switch that closes(on) at 190-195* and opens at 180*(off)
was thinking a mid eighties f body but can't find the specs of when it turned the fans on and what temp it shut them off.. maybe a 94 b body?
any help.. thanks..

For what it is worth, I equipped my 72 C10 with the flexalite variable speed fan controller. You cant beat this, a bit more cash but well worth it and it has operated flawless for years:

Modulating soft start control is also easier on the fan motor, just to name one benefit

thats nice,, but 99.00 I'm doing the jeep fan in the c-10 scroud,, the fan new was 59.00 from mother mopar.. maybe if I was installing a costly fan.. the thermal switchs are 39.00 new.. I'll do that if I can't find a stock part that I can get at a junkyard crawl.. no point is spending money,(real money) till I know what engines going in this down the road.. will it be a 355 or 496, both are on hand,, if this truck stays d.d. duty, it'll get a g.m. crate 96-02 truck vortec.. moneys an issue, as I'm out on medical leave from work.. so cheap is good..
thanks at least it gives me options

While costly, the Dakota Digital unit is a very solid unit. I like the fact that I have a test mode..... it allows me to turn the fans on/off etc....... giving me a piece of mind that fan one is coming on when it should then fan two etc...... I am ver pleased with mine.
