Re: 3.54 vs 3.25

Re: hayden automotive 3647 adjustable thermostatic fan control

Where did you install the switch? I'm wondering if a switch can be installed from the a/c override wire (green) to a 12v source.?

Re: 4-7 psi cap for Griffin radiator?

Repair is on the schedule. I don't think I need a high pressure cap so I'm wanting to fit a low pressure cap on the radiator even after the gasket is replaced.?

Re: Oil pressure mystery

Problem solved. Removed tube type oil line from engine to sender and replaced it with a coiled nylon line. That's all. But I truly appreciate all the responses here. This forum is great!
