Hey Kneale

Thats just the info I needed thanks, I have sealad the recirculator hole
up already and will mount the temp sensor this weekend.

It sounds like you have already done what I am in the middle of, and so I
am presuming that I dont need to do anythign with any of the other
connectors to trick the computer in any other ways?

Thanks again
