Wolseley Hornet goes home

The tuning of of the carburettors on this Wolseley Hornet Special went well last week, and the test drive showed that the cam timing work was also a success, but the thermostatic control to the already fitted electric fan was found to be inoperative. I ordered and fitted a "Davies, Craig" controller and kept most of the owner's wiring and the fan. The controller shows the current temperature through a probe that fits perfectly into the honeycomb of the radiator. A push button allows the user to set the temperature at which the fan turns on and it will turn off 6 degrees below that level. On test the temperature recorded on the controller was only a degree or so below the reading on the temperature gauge. The owner came and collected it today and drove it home (it came in on a trailer).
