|lg1969||I install an electric fan on 34 ford that had a 350sbc. All you have to do is go to a local auto parts store and pick a thermostat switch and install it on the intake manifold. Wire it the a radioshack 30amp automotive relay. It turn on at 180 and turn off at 175.|

Here's a thread that might help you out: http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/2-sp...ch-131375.html
He's using an OEM switch from some type of Volkswagen that can handle 2 different fans/temps. It looks like one of the configurations will get you close to your temp requirements, but I don't know which model of VW to look at for the switch.

Thanx for the links.
I was wondering if anyone knew of an oem gm style switch at the lower temp i wanted (185 turn on)I know fuel injected vehicles run at higher temps. I wanted an oem switch in case it ever failed, replacement would be easy at any local auto store.
Anyway i will probably just end up running dual switches and relays. My fan is a 2 speed.
Switch 2 (185 turn on)
Switch 1 (195 turn on)
