      If i recall correctly it's the switch that turns on the radiator fan after turning off the ignition.

      I think it goes here

      I wouldn't say that at all.
      Personally a dream of mine would be to undertake the exact build you did. I appreciate you taking the time to document the build. Shame I'll never get to check it out in person - that many new OEM parts under the hood would definitely be a sight to behold.
      Serious 100% of the time.

      thanks, I'm studying automotive technology so this is what I aspire to: high quality restauration. I'm hoping to turn this hobby into my proffesion.

      I love everything that you are doing. I just finished up my 50mm 16V Manifold using the same methods you did when cleaning up your parts.

      Thanks for the inspiration!

      Also, on a seperate note, some of your pictures are showing that they are "unavailable" and it shows the flickr label...what's wrong?

      Can you tell me what's the reference of this part?



      It is connected or something?
