you gotta be fookin kidding me! $100 for switch?

well fukk me in the goatass

keep forgetting to order a new front fender oil cooler fan temp switch, ready to reassemble and it's holding me up of course

just checked our host:

1987 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe - Oil Circulation - Page 4

$95!?!?!???

WTF?

I'd geniusly busted the top prong off mine when I'd had the cooler laying on the floor trying to muscle the lines loose

Anyone got a spare laying around for reasonable $?

I'm beyond pissed... fuch.

or

is there any way I can braze something back onto the tip that might work? Would seem a reasonable solution?

I remember reading there's one for a BMW that fits and turns on the fan at a little lower temperature so it's a good thing anyway.

Yeah, that switch has to be common on something else for a fraction of cost.

The BMW fan switch part number is 6131136429791M36. Personally, I would not use this switch, though people in the 911 forum like to, as it activates the fan at 196 degrees F. - well below the optimum oil temp range of 210-220. Also the BMW switch turns the fan on a full 52 degrees earlier than the one Porsche chose to use (seems a bit wacky to do such significant second guessing). I don't know why some folks have such a ****on for it other than they like the sound of the lower temp?

PS- effff eyyyyyy, Paul !!!!!!!!!

Ha ha, yep! I actually looked online to see if JB made a conductive version of their magic epoxy, buuuuutttt nooooooo, so had to go with a "lessor" brand!

I don't think that manual switch you posted would be a good idea for Paul - he'd probably get it confused with his often used,"dude magnet" switch and then his fan would run continuously!!!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh... I rikey the idea of the manual switch (difurnt than Ronnie's MAN SWTICH)

I've got an open switch mounted beneath my dash's lower edge I could grab the wires from.

thanks for the other suggestions - the switch IIRC was labed 135* on the side which I found odd

didn't think of checking fleabay duh

alas

I'd previously shared that my fan was TIGHT to spin... finally got around to jumpering it last night (after my Alfa bud John swooped in and soldered a bullet connector on a wire to my sender for the easy fix, of course), and the fan no worky.

As this impedes the final nose button-up, I unplugged the fan and put it on the shelf for further determination at a later date. I'm pretty certain my temps will be fine w/o the fan with the OE cooler fed by the bumper scoop and Setrab 172 combo, for my usage. Mebbe I'll attempt to resurrect. Mebbe I'll sell. Dunno yet.

So, I blazed ahead in the name of PROGRESS!:




as I've said before and continue to say again... getting there... oy.

Paul, car looks better with each piece reinstalled. Maybe a local auto electric shop could rehab that fan motor?

$100...considering if it's a factory Porsche part, and the limited amount of these they sell based on so few cars manufactured, $100 sounds like a bargain.

Kras, spend the 50 cents for the butt plug for the goatsass, break down and buy the part from our host. Get it done right. The board alone with all the fun and free advice is worth the cost! Bye the way, car is looking great.

P.S.: I have a goat that moonlights. lmao

I had a Honeywell refrigeration controller lying around the garage...strapped the bulb to the oil line with Armaflex tape. I have a new digital one to go in soon, cockpit mount with temp feedback and adjustable cut in.
