Flex-a-lite part no. 480 - A/C turn on question
I have read threads on electric fan conversions on 91-93 B-Bodies and it seems that there are people for it and people against it. I have a friend who has a NIB flex-a-lite set up part 480. I verified with Flex-a-lite directly and it can be used on my car and comes with all brackets, wires and control box. My question is that when I asked the tech about the A/C turn on switch he said I can use a t-tap connector and splice into the hot wire going to the A/C compressor and hook up the wire from the control box to the this connection and this will turn on the fans each time I turn on my A/C, tech suggested I solder joint instead of using the t-tap connector though.
Has anyone done it this way or should I stick to my mechanical fan (hate the roar on start up). I can get the set up for cheap but don't want to ruin my ride by using it. Any thoughts.
