next to the out letdoesnt make the fan run all the time only when it gets hot so my fan runs less then yours not that they arent the same temp buy the way have you ever felt your wiring when its runing my wires are hotttt i had to put a heavy connector on because it bernt the one that it came withslammed1 said:FK-60 instructions specify placing it on the outlet side of the radiator which is the lower corner,where the cooler water exits to the engine,not sure why FK-60 wants it there because the inlet of the radiator is the top where the hose enters which is where the hot water from the engine enters. All of my elec fans with a controller I have installed the temp probe closely to the inlet of the radiator (top side) where the coolant is exiting the engine into the radiator which is where the hottest coolant will be...........the coolant gets cooler as it flows across the radiator while its being drawn downward to the outlet on the opposite lower side of the radiator. I am still not sure why the FK-60 wants the probe at the part of the radiator where the coolest coolant would be??? Still trying to figure that one out but I am not the designer of the FK-60,so maybe someone knows.
Here's what Brian fabbed up. I wanted it installed in front of the battery. He did a great job!viper1 said:I have a question in regards to the placement or location of install. Where have you guys been installing your controllers? I have mine mounted on the front of the front brace, driverside, brace directly behind grill. problem is: Are these things :"waterproof" i got mine wet the other day and could of sworn I heard some sizzling? weird thing is it still works like new?? I'm thinking it might be smart to find a new place to mount it? UNLESS you guys tell me its waterproof... and/or design some sort of cover for it.
I think it would be ok. Maybe you can fab something up and just make sure whatever you put over it is slightly vented?viper1 said:would there be anything wrong with putting a cover over the front of it, like just for the winter or forever for that matter. I now realize I screwed up where I placed mine. I wasn't thinking about the rain and such.
This part confused me bro.? because I already have it mounted. but, I think I know what you mean? it would be nice to be able to be lazy though, and just buy something.SilsHemi said:You could place it in a way that would protect it against the elements and still have some ventilation. I think it would work!
