Just joined AO as i just got 164 3L 12V (Hence the 1st post). Always wanted an A. Car goes good and feels great. 2 problems.
1/ Where's the fuse box?
2/ Temp hits max. Fan doesn't go on, (so want to check fuse first, then want 2 short sender wires 2 see if fan works), but this is not the problem as highway driving doesn't change the temp needle. Well, only slightly.
At max temp can't hear any water bubbling noises from motor or radiator and no steam. When i squeeze top radiator hose, although hot, there is no pressure in the hose, but this does move water in the water reservoir bottle.
I trust this info will generate some suggestions as to whether the fault lies in the stat, blocked radiator, or temp gauge or something else.
