i run a moroso electric water pump drive kit to cool my car between rounds. in my old age i forget to turn it off and it will run till next round. im afraid i will run my battery down sooner or later. i have considered a termostat controll and also a timer. all the thermostat controlled ones cut off at 170 degrees at the best. i need mine to go quite a bit lower than that. any opinions on either way?

{I doubt that! I've always found Alex to be open minded.}

{Yes, they are thermostats. The ones I've seen you slip the capilary bulb into the upper radiator hose under the hose clamp.}

no, not the ones im talking about. the temp sensor on this type is a thin 3 inch rod that you sti into the radiator fins near the top radiator hose....works great.
