electric fan and water temp switch

I have 1968 camaro 396 with electric fan and console gauges. I am wanting to have one switch for my fan and temp gauge can I do this? If so does anyone know the part number. Thanks in advance.

Re: electric fan and water temp switch

What is the purpose of the switch for the temp gauge?

For the temperature reading on the console. I want to go to only one switch instead of one for the electric fan and one for the temperature gauge on the console.

No. a gauge sender and a switch work totally different.

Re: electric fan and water temp switch

The gauge has its own power from the ACC position of ign switch.
For fan power, naturally, you are going to use the switch for controlling the fan relay.
And in making the job easier, as in running one wire vice two, wire toggle switch, or rocker, your choice, on the ground side of relay coil.
Run power to relay coil, then other coil lead to new switch and other side of switch to ground.
Now you are completing the circuit by providing a ground.
If you wire on power side, you have to run two wires, one from power source to switch, then back out to relay coil.
