@Roger; yes trial and error method. But in my case I would not use the sensor for a fan. Hereto I have a separate circuit, but not yet a sufficent strong fan : :o .
So the sensor is only for start up enrichment.

@edce
An electric fan is unlikely to fully replace the standard item.
An estimate of power for the 2cv fan is may be 1+ Bhp that is approx 750 watts.
So at 12 volts at 60 amps for the equivalent electric fan.

Roger, its too late to start cooling at idle only. The starting point is when the drive wind is insufficient for cooling. I have an anemometer but never tried to find out the speed to start cooling. Something for "when I will have time for it" :roll: :roll:

Some progress on cutting the thread in the temp sensor.

We didn't finish it as we ran out of time due to playing with war games figures in the man cave. :D My brother in law makes them :)

However, I think we proved it will work :) ideally, I would continue the m7 thread, and cut off the m5 thread.

Today I tested the (higher pressure) intank petrol pump to be used outside. It is a Toyota pump of at least 35 years old. First I tested if it would turn : yes that was OK ! Then I feld it blowing a bit of air over my hand. It had a capillary opening in the bottom. So I had to close this because it would stray petrol all over the place. After the sealant had hardened the pump wouldn't turn anylonger. So I had to open the pump and indeed some sealant blocked the rotor. I took the surplus sealant away, connected the hoses and there it started to pump immediately ! Succes ! Because the mounting will be almost as low as the tank, the capillary opening is not needed. Any air will easily move upwards in the hoses further to the engine. Now I have a pump giving the right pressure to the petrol rail which has the pressure regulator towards the injectors.

And for your info : such an intankpump does not make any noice. Its a rotary type. The rotor looks like a flywheel (but very small of course :lol: )

I have never seen a caravan pump AZL57 so I can't compare.
