        Comments about Imperial Thermostatic Fan Control - Preset:

        I've been using this kit for several years on my off road truck. It's hooked up to a powerful flex-a-lite fan and handles the load with ease. I have blown a couple fuses, but that only happens when crossing deep water. The install was very easy, and since there's only a couple parts it is very reliable. I've had the adjustable units fail once a little water or mud gets on them. This one can be mounted up and out of harms way. I will be getting a second unit for my daily driver pickup, so I'm happy to see they're still available.

        Comments about Imperial Thermostatic Fan Control - Preset:

        This unit is easy to install. However, the most important piece is the most unreliable of the contents in the package: The thermostatic switch. It is supposed to "close the circuit" at ~185*F. This does not happen. I tried two separate new ones and neither are accurate, or close, for that matter. In a pan of hot water, the 2 switches I got from Advance Auto Parts were nowhere close to this temp setting. One switch closed at 224*F, and the other closed at 240*F (water was boiling for a few minutes before the switch closed.)
        Being that I am using the Imperial fan (226110) on the Imperial Maxi-Cool Transmission cooler (243012), these temperatures would have already caused transmission damage, let alone the fact that they're supposed to operate in the 185*F range. 40-60*F variance is totally unacceptable.
