Thermo Fan Switch:

Natrad made this up for me for $25. It's a 3" length of pipe with a screw fitting to take an Holden
Top Tank Switch.

I cut 1" out of the top radiator hose and fitted this 3" length into the gap. Natrad made the flares
so that the hoses would not come off. They've been running fine on both cars since 2000.  A typical Top Tank Switch turns on at 104 degrees and turns off at 93 degrees.

Davies Craig Thermal Switch:

The top hose sender(housing and all) is part of the Davies Craig EWP 115 kit. The terminal connector is like the modern commodore style two pin plug. I've had this EWP almost 5yrs,but I assume there still much the same. It all fits together real well,works perfectly,and as you say,still looks tidy. Cheers, Bernie.
