Thermal switch values...?

My car is a 30 Chevy 5 window coupe with no hood...I live in Florida...
The fan comes on at 225-230 and I want it to come on sooner...say, 195 or so...
It has the pipe thread type switch located in the intake manifold...

When I try to buy a switch for those temps, the local parts stores tell me that they arent labled (packaged) that way,,,they are labled in ohms...
what ohm value do I need?

thanx for any help given...

Thermal switch

If you go to http://www.summitracing.com/ and do a search for thermal switch or fan switch you'll get a lot of choices for the temp.

Sorry, I did not see yor thread until it was to late.

I thought I would post this in case it helps somebody else. It's not a true temp switch for fans but I have found the values transpond to all switch's. If nothing else it would be something to cross refrence in the parts books list in ohm's.
