Agreed. And technically, it would be a step motor. Also, you could do
away with the thermistor and just hook up to the oil temp sender. So
the controller might be nothing more complicated than an oil
temperature gauge that switches the step motor. That's the ugly way to
do it. Maybe there's a cleaner way.
