Too late, is the answer.

The standard thermoswitch trips in at 110°. That’s way too hot.

Mine used to go right up into the red before the fans came on. By then the oil’s like water.

What a lot of people do is replace the stock switch with one for a car that comes on at 90°, and add a suitably positioned manual switch in parallel with the thermal switch so that you can manually turn them on.

Have a search on this forum. There are a lot of posts about this very subject.
