X-Eng have produced these rather nice looking Aluminium, CNC Billet machined in-hose adaptors for standard thermostatic fan controller inserts as used on most cars.
They can be fitted to any vehicle which uses 38mm inside diameter radiator hose. Some older vehicles use 35mm hose but it will normally stretch over the ends of the adaptor.
Suitable for Defender, Range Rover Classic and Discovery 1.
The adaptors are available in red or blue anodised finish and are supplied with a dual temperature fan controller insert.
The thermostatic switch insert we supply is designed to switch one fan on at 88 degrees C and off at 83 and the other on at 92 and off at 87 which is about right for most vehicles. The housing takes standard 22mm thread inserts, available from most motor factors (through Intermotor). The sensor is capable of switching 17A although we recommed using a relay to protect the sensor on most fans. Fans are available in all shapes and sizes. Many are sourced from vehicle breaker yards for only a few pounds. These can be easily adapted to fit your vehicle. Good quality new fans are available from Kenlowe and Passet or Spal for most vehicles.
Although all of the above supply thermostatic switches, some of which are even variable, none of them are capable of switching two fans and they rarely seem to last longer than a few months due to corrosion or water ingress. Many use a mercury bulb on the end of a copper capilliary tube which needs to be inserted inbetween the top hose and the pipe which comes out of the radiator - it is near impossible to seal this joint and the thin capilliary tube is fragile. Probably the best testamonial for this kind of switch is that it is used by almost all motor manufacturers to switch electric fans.
