Please read the hole thing before jumping to conclusions please.
Really don't know how to start this but here it goes. I want to know if my electric fan sending unit on/off temps could be interfering with the operation of my thermostat. The temperature should remain fairly constant after the engine is warmed up.
I have 180 degree thermostat , and I have verified on the stove that it opens at the rated temperature.
My sending unit for my electric fan is in the driver's side head and is set to come on at 195, off 180.
Right now I have the temp gauge sending unit in the passenger side head just to monitor when the fan comes on and goes off. I do know that there can be some differences in temperature between the two heads but the fan does come on at 195 and turns off at 180 like it should. I am going to put the temp guage up in the intake. I also know there is a difference in temperature at the intake and at the heads for obvious reasons.
Given the 180 degree thermostat rating and the fact that the it is not fully open until 15 degrees above the rating and fan on/off temps, it looks to me like there will be good temperature fluctuation. What do you think?
