        The temp sensor for this thing would not work for my car. Make sure the sensor will be able to screw into your intake or some available water jacket spot.

        • Q:

          I'm looking at the Imperial adjustable thermostatic fan control where the temperature probe screws into the block or intake. I need to know what size thread the probe has? Is it a quarter or three eighth inch pipe thread?

            A:

            Happy to help Rock! You could also check for resistance in the wires from the connection tab to the relay and/or the fuse or check for a short in that section. Or also test the sensor if it is functioning but putting it in warm(be careful) water and testing it. I suggest checking the repair manual for your vehicle for the test values or consulting with a certified mechanic.

            A:

            The best way to set/adjust a thermostat fan is to allow the engine to warm up to operating temp w/o the fan on. Once it reaches 160°F thermostat opens, the radiator top will begin to warm rapidly. This is the point where you can adjust the switch setting.

          Where exactly do you put the temp probe? It indicates the radiator or water jacket, what do you do drill and tap a hole?? I have a Mopar performance crate 360 magnum with an M 1 intake.
