ok, when i install mine, i screw to the manifol intake to, but whit the heat of the engine the fan dont come off, so i make a piece of tube and drilled for scew the 3/8 sensor, i cut in two pices the radiator hose and install the piece of tube betwen the two hoses, whit that the 3/8 sensor keep out of the heat of the intake and the temp reads was more real, so the fan come on and off now, but some firend said to me that i make a mistake, for get a right function of the fan on and off, i need to put the piece of tube and the 3/8 sensor also, in the return radiator hose, why? becasue when the water come out of the radiator and go to the engine the sensor reads the temp water, if the water is cool the sensor stops the fan, and when the water is hot the sensor star the fan, believe me its the best location for the sensor
