On a 1998 Land Rover Discovery 1 is the hose that goes from the radiator to the thermostat the correct hose to connect this adapter for a mechanical water temp gauge?

Asked by: Eddie G
Hi Eddie, thank you for the question. You would actually want to install the radiator hose adapter in the opposite hose that the thermostat is in. In other words, you do not want to install it in the same hose as the thermostat.

Can this be used to turn on the electric fan

Asked by: Tom c
Thank you for your question. This is an adapter for your radiator hose that has a port you can use for one of our gauges. We have some temperature sensors you can use with this to turn on/off a fan and we also have a couple gauges which have a function to do this as well.

Will the 3/8" NPT  adapter accept the 1/8" transducer fitted to most of your gauges?

Asked by: RRDen
Most of our mechanical gauges will come with a 1/2" NPT adapter, but will use the 3/8" NPT adapter that is included with our 2283 Radiator Hose adapter. All of our mechanical temperature gauges will adapt to the 3/8" adapter included with the 2283. Our electric gauges use an 1/8" NPT sender, but all include their own 1/8" to 3/8" NPT adapter, which would be used if you are installing our electric gauge into the radiator hose adapter.

My radiator hoses are 2.00 do you make one of these to fit this size or know of someone that does?

Asked by: Hot Head Harry
Hi Harry, thank you so much for contacting us. My apologies, but I'm unaware of any 2" adapters out on the market. We built these in house because we couldn't find anyone that made anything like them in the marketplace. That was definitely a few years ago, so that may have changed. It may be easier to look into something like a water neck adapter which are pretty common (or drilling nd tapping your existing water neck). I'm sorry we couldn't be more helpful.
