Default Electric fan

I have an electric radiator fan on my willys, wired key hot, but Iíd like to wire it automatic. I know that I need a temp sensor, and a relay, but the problem Iím having is getting the right parts, when I go to the parts store they insist on having the vehicle application, since a 59 willys with a Toyota engine is not in their computer they canít find me the parts. Anybody out there know what combination of sensor and relay I need ? Iím running a 195 thermostat.

This is the controller I use on all my cars... it's adjustable! Been using them for years!

I have an adjustable one and don't like it, I'll be switching it out for a fixed one soon. Check out summit, they have all kinds of options whether fixed temp or adjustable and with or without relays.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

Go to an old parts store if you can find one. Not a chain store. They will be more likely to understand what you want to do. I went to O'Reily's a while back with a small block chevy fuel pump in my hand and the kid didn't know what it was.
