GTE water temp switch

Hi Tom, in your recent blog you were talking about a water temp switch being adjustable. I presume you are talking about the fan switch. Are you? If so can you explain. I am very interested in learning about it. Thanks.

Hi John,

According to Jim Simpson who took apart the switch, there is a pot on the switch that allows it to adjust when the circuit closes. When he tested the switch after cleaning the internal contacts, he found it to be working properly, so this one didn't need to be adjusted. I believe this one turns on the fan at 180, and shuts off at 160.

Say, whilst we were all talking about the fan switch..... Has anyone got a source for the Peugeot magnetic clutch.
I have got as far as tracing back to a part number for a 403, 1250.17 or 1250.06 which is described as:
Poulie débrayable de pompe à eau d'origine PEUGEOT 403 pièce neuve d'origine PEUGEOT
which is a really neat french way of describing a pulley that dis-engages on the front of the water pump.
BUT: the pulley on the assembly, offset wise, is not the same as the GTE> so has anyone solved this problem?
Rebuild-able? People who rebuild?

Rgs,

Andrew.

I bought a used one from GTO Engineering and at the time they had 2 or 3 more. I did this because I was unable to find anyone who could rebuild mine.
