Cooler Temp Thermoswitch.
Posted 28 November 2011 - 10:29 PM
The Stock EA82 one is designed to start the electric Fan at 203º F while the EA82 Turbo one is Designed to Kick on at 200º F.
I am Looking for something even Cooler to swap there, Because I am Removing the Fixed Pulley Driven Fan and installing another Electric fan instead, as you can read here.
So, does anybody know of a Cooler thermoswitch and its part Number or Make/model of the car?

Go to ebay and search "adjustable fan switch"

I was hoping that there could be a Direct Bolt-on Replacement...
Our caribbean Hot Climates makes me to be Afraid about not having the Pulley Driven Fan and the electric fan tend to Start when the Temp gauge are Above the Middle...

The older cars switch has one pole/terminal (won't work)
The loyale and ej switch looks similar but has a pigtail with a different connector.
Posted 29 November 2011 - 05:11 PM
Both Kicks on at 203º F and has the same thread & Size.

I think 85-88 use that style. What year is the bumble beast.

... What year is the bumble beast.
I can search for a Picture of the Old Pigtailed Thermoswitch...

Just have the other style on my 86 and 88 xt
Maybe california models got the pigtail style.
Keep in mind though you car needs to get to operating temp. Running cold can decrease fuel mileage

If you go this route you could wire a light to the old OEM switch to one of the fans as a backup in case your nearing an overheat and/or wire a warning light to it to let you know sometings wrong
I didn't realize you asked me for pics of my setup in your other post. I can get you some pics if you still want.

I believe you.

Well, I found it!
This is the Old original pigtailed Thermoswitch:
This is the New one that I Had as Replacement, long time ago:
This Pigtailed Thermoswitch has the Part Number: 83052GA041
and it has its Temperature stamped in Celcius Degrees, as we use in Latin-America: 92º C (= 198º F)
The other Style:
Has the Part Number: 83052GA040 and it has its Temperature stamped in Fahrenheit Degrees: 203º F (= 95º C)
Posted 02 December 2011 - 12:28 AM
- the Pigtailed Thermoswitch, it designed to Kick on at 198º F
- the twin spades connector Thermoswitch Kicks on at 203º F
- the Turbo (EA82T) Thermoswitch Kicks on at 200º F

Seems like I'm the First one investigating for a Cooler temp Thermo Switch.
So, the Thread measurements for the Original Subaru Thermo Switch, are:
Yes, 16 X 1.5 Pitch...
interesting, since Many Many cars came with that Same Measurement for Thermo Switches, according to the Beck Arrnley Thermoswitch Listings.
Beck Arnley Thermo Switches are Made in italy, of Good Quality Brass, I Found the Replacement Right for the EA82 engine:

I just put the one above your post in the other day. Works fine, $23 on eBay.
Yes that works fine for the Stock EA82, because it is the one that factory intended to use: It comes ON at 203º F (95º C) and that is a li'l Hotter than I wanted my BumbleBeast to Run...
Remember this Thread's title: I wanted a "Cooler" temp thermoswitch.
Posted 16 January 2012 - 10:20 PM
So what did you end up using to control your fans?
Yes, I Already found the Solution last December...
I was just waiting a Whole Month of test drive my BumbleBeast prior to post here what I did, in order to give just the Proper advice.
So, I'll post here all the information Soon.

(Link on the Previous Post)
...if now the Coolin' System will Depends only on Electric Fans, They'll need to Start earlier than the Risky 203º F (95º C) for Sure, due to the Fact that they will be no More "Auxiliary" Fan, nor a permanent fan... just Twin Electric Fans.
So I Found that the Subaru's Thermo switch has the Followin' measurements:
M 16 X 1.5 Pitch
And Doing my Research, I found that some Hyundais come
with Same measurements on their Thermo Switches, and
certain models came with Cooler Temperature Range.
This is the Original Subaru EA82 Thermo Switch and its Part Number:
There are Aftermarket ones too...
But since in my Own Humble Opinion, They're Too Hot
to be "Safe" for the head gaskets on long term use on the
EA82 without the Mechanical fan;.
I Found This one:
It Belongs to a Hyundai Elantra, this is the Part Number chart:
Here you can See How Both Thermo Switches could be Compared,
Side by Side, and their Temperatures:
This is the New, Hyundai Thermo Switch:
Testing it to fit the Subaru's Radiator:
Same Measurements at All...

When my BumbleBeast reaches the Operating Temperature and the Twin Fans starts, they work for only a Minute and the engine needs Ten Minutes to reach the Opening temperature again, when I tested the car on a Closed Garage.
I Hope this Solution can Help.
