thanks...i think the temp range is 190-210? but need to find a correct amperage relay etc...and just put the proble in the radiator fins?
I just bought a standard fan relay kit at Autozone; I'm not sure of the current. I hooked the +12 volt lead directly to the battery and the -12 volts to a good ground. Then I fount an ignition-switched voltage source for the accessory wire (I used one from the wiper motor) and hooked up the A/C wire to the compressor. There is a temperature probe and that goes in the radiator fins near where the coolant comes out of the engine. Mount the relay itself somewhere (I screwed it to the fuse box cover) and you're all set. Hope that helps!
