No wonder the twins didn't come on, sloppy crimp job on a connector.
They are supposed to run at anything over 175*
More testing tomorrow, got to get rid of that tank of high octane.
And a PPS that buzzing that drove me nuts- an exhaust clamp was rolled up.
The long end of the bolt was buzzing on the floor board.

04-17-2015 05:07 PM Being cool
With a little help from the guys in electrical, got all the fans /w relays
and lighted cut off rocker switches hooked up.
Far as I could tell the trany cooler fan never came on. The twin
rad fans didn't come on, only got to 185* with my new alum rad
and small fan.
75* day in traffic-- cool.
That pic is my future gauge/switch panel, but not right now.
Couple days of good weather coming up and gas to burn.
Play off time= time for hockey and beerisky tonight.

Developed a rattle/buzzing. Sound like static on the speaker.
I am missing one of my favorite wrenches. Maybe I'll find it.
Got a 195* thermostat, 13# rad cap, runs 180* now, little over 210 in traffic.

So the new rad was an inch thicker, wouldn't sit down
inside the rad frame on the bottom. That made the bottom hose connection interfere with the alternator. Raised the alt. up and the battery would not fit. Earlier I'd bought a kit to move it
so got that installed. Had to have a cut off switch for the track. Done deal.
All thats left is the electric fan to deal with.
