    I currently have an electric fan on my truck and I've wired it so it will stay on when the engine is off and Hot! What I would like to do is mount a passive water pump in line on the radiator hose that would come on when two conditions apply: 1) the truck is off and 2) Truck is hot and the fan is on.... I know how to wire it to do so, but I need to know where I can get something like this... It doesn't have to be high circulation, just enough so as the fan cools the water in the radiator, the pump still circulates the water and cools the engine down quicker when off.... Thanks guys! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    1. talk to some some turbo guys
    2. I think (really sometimes I DO!) the water still flows by way of heat/cooling, it only stops when the thermostat closes /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Random thoughts...FWIW:
    Are you running a dual battery setup?
    Seems like an electric fan AND water pump would draw a lot of power. I would hate to have to rely on 1 battery to start my truck after running fan/water pump.

    Yes I'm actually running tri batteries! They are isolated and I have an 160Amp alternator! Does anyone know if that pump is passive? Like say that if it's not turning, my mechanical one can pump through it and not be restricted! Thanks for the info guys! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
