temperature probe placement

Installing a Hayden Thermostatic fan control on a Walker Radiator(283 motor). Should the probe be placed at the top or bottom of the radiator? Instructions do not address placement. Thanx in advance

doesn't make much of a difference. but it does matter what side it goes in. it needs to be in the "inlet" side of the radiator. i have mine at the bottom right next to the tank, works fine. if you want to get nit picky, put it as close as possible to the hose .

i am assuming its a external probe ? the kind that pushes into the fins.

the old one that quit pushed into the fins. this new one has a cable tie set up that holds the probe aganist the fins. the unit is adjustable from 32/248 degrees F. i figure to set it @ about 170 degrees, the same as my thermostat

If you set it the same as your thermostat then your fan will run constantly as soon as your thermostat opens.
