My electric fan is a two speed low comes when you turn on a/c and high comes on at 185 ,Adjustable thermostat, I have an over ride switvh a DPDT,so I can turn on low or high manually or leave on automatic,

Just a note ,the black strip at top is not a gap it is a rubber seal to force All air to come thru radiator core.
