looking for a trans sensor to trigger an electric fan

In my truck, I have no space in front of the rad to mount a trans cooler, so I will mount it under the floor. I will therefore have to use an electric fan with it and I need a sensor/thermal switch to trigger the electric fan when the trans fluid gets up to a certain temperature.
My problem is where to find this!?! I know B&M has one but only sells it as part of a whole kit (switch+cooler+fan): I just need the sensor/switch!
Any thoughts?

I used one from NAPA that was for a electric radiator fan.Mounted the sense tube in the fins of the cooler .The unit was adjustable and I had to play with the adj till I got to come on at the right time.Drove the truck 2 years and never had a problem.I can't give you the part number as I no longer have the truck but it was the only adjustable one they had........about 25 bucks IIRC
Good Luck
