Ill have a look on the paper weight ive just torn out and tossed in the barn to see what thats like...
Do you need that switch?

Hold off on the switch. I am going to try to find something locally.

Find a diagram of the existing cooling system.

You need to make sure that water circulates in the engine when the thermostat is closed.

The thermostat either has a bypass valve or there's a small bypass port in the system.

You don't want the thermostat to be closed and the water in the engine not going anywhere.

I have looked at the diagram. There is a bypass port right behind the thermostat. to keep it functioning properly I will remove the valve from the current thermostat and put it back in it's original location.
