Honda 76 GL 1000 Thermostat Switch + Fan

Postby biggles58@me.com » Wed Sep 14, 2011 8:05 pm



Hi could anyone help me with a part number for the Thermostat Switch as I damaged it when I took the shroud off to see if the fan is working. I will take the fan out and check for loose wires and check the fan is working I do not think the fan is working either so I have to replace both Thermostat Switch and Fan assembly. If anyone knows the part number for both it would be greatly appreciated and if you know a good website to source these parts.

Thanks

biggles

Thermo-switch # 37760mb9000
Fan motor # 19030pc1003
Be careful buying a thermo switch as there a few out there that aren't the correct temp settings.
The fan motor can be repaired. If it doesn't work it probably is just the brushes or it needs to be cleaned and lubricated.

Honda's electric motors are pretty darn good, usually just need a cleaning or sometimes common brush replacements.

I was looking to repair/clean the switch on my '76 and ran across the suggestion of using the same switch from a '76 Honda Civic. I found the part from this supplier - http://www.carid.com/1977-honda-civic-e ... 04928.html - if looks count for anything, this seems to match what I just removed and cleaned on my '76.

Has anyone ever tried this switch and found it successful?

Definitely looks the same. I would need to know what the temp ratings are for that one.

I did a little more searching and found a number of references to the Beck/Arnley unit. I also found the following on ClassingGoldWings:
Valid for 1975 thru 1987 GoldWings.

1994 Geo Metro 1.0L, MR Series

Closed Switch Temp Range=88.5c to 91.5c.
Open Switch Temp Range=82c to 88c.

The Part Number Collection:

* BWD #TFS596 40-5079
* Beck Arnley #201-0817 ($20.00 RockAuto.com)
* Gates #T274 (RockAuto.com $16)
* Borg Warner #TFS596
* Echlin #FS-130 (36.77 NAPA)
* Niehof #WA-639B
* Four Seasons #35934
* Autozone #002683
* Car Quest #TS-306

A word of caution ... running the OEM thermostat with these Thermo Switches is not recommended. Your fan will be running all the time. I use the Stant 13868 82 deg C.
I didn't have a problem with the Geo switch and NAPA #101 Thermostat. Roady



Also there is this link http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/10- ... witch.html to Steve Saunder's site with more info... :

And I noticed I miss-typed the year of my Goldwing. It is a '77 not a '76.

I cleaned the switch on my '79 a few days ago and now it works perfectly. The PO had wired a switch (I guess in lieu of replacing/repairing the original) that activated the fan on demand. I guess I'll leave it there even though it's no longer needed.
