Where Should Fan Thermo Swith be fitted?

For over ten years I have had the fan thermocouple switch located in the top of the radiator and the temp gauge bulb in the tower above the thermostat.  I have been told by an engine builder that the two are the wrong way around.   Is he right?

 Does anyone have a picture of a pressured cooling system fitted to a X/F with a heater?

PS: Let me know if you'd like a copy.

Virden, yours are exactly where I have mine on current x-flow and on 3 previous engines. Their positions make perfect sense to me based on what function they are performing, Dave.

I would have thought that the temperature sensor should be in the cylinder head in the hole provided by Ford.

1990 manual shows it in this position and the fan switch in the ally thermostat tower.

edited to add:- there is no provision on my radiator to fit any sensors...

Is that the same picture that I posted above? And if not please can I have a copy for the collection?

Thanks

Jonathan

Thanks, Brian.

Looks like the same diagram. And it is "Fig 10.7" in the 1988 Assembly Guide.

Hi Jonathan, I've just tried to send a pm but your mail box is full. To answer your question Windows 10 (updated a few days ago)  and Microsoft Edge.

I cannot see the pdf that I have apparently posted!

Brian.

There's a reference to a similar problem with a possible explanation.

Could you try some other browsers and see if the pdfs show inline?

I've tried internet explorer and all I get is a box with a cross through it ( more than edge shows!), so we tried a mobile phone and get a small box that we cannot open up to show the pdf's.

Brian.

Looks like I can post pictures though.
