I need a sensor to kick on a fan relay. The only extra port I have on the thermostat housing is the one next to the heater core port on the back. I'm pretty sure its 1/8" bsp, right? Anyone know where I can get a 185* sensor that size? I'd tap it to npt but its already installed and I don't think I have the room.

The galant had a stock sensor in this spot that triggered both fans as a failsafe I believe. I think that sensor is a higher temp though. IDK. Can anyone confirm that?

I need a two wire sensor because I wired the relay already for positive trigger.
So 2 wire 1/8" -28 bspt 180 on 165 off fan switch. Anyone?

What about the drain port in the radiator? I have a civic half rad. Anyone know the thread size on those? That would be easy enough to wire.

Easiest may be to use a bsp to npt adapter?
I found a place in Australia, but it was a sensor not a switch.

Where do I find a replacement wire connector for the stock white fan sensor? It is 2 pin oval and has the two notches @ 4 and 8 o'clock.
