Re: Radiator Questions

Small hole at top is a bleed pipe back to the header tank

Large hole is for the fan switch - It is called an otter switch

Inlet would be on the left side of that photograph and outlet on the right

Re: Radiator Questions

Good morning England,
I had a few questions with my radiator Ian, since I am running a reverse rotation water pump and my otter switch connection is on the left side of the radiator (driver side in America). i uploaded a photo of the actual radiator.

Re: Radiator Questions

It all works the same but would it not be better to have the fan switch at the water outlet on the intake, twill turn the fan on a little sooner. I was going to put mine at the rad as well but not to shr yet. what do others think?
