Flushed radiator...replaced thermostat... (as there wasn't one in there when i inspected) why?.(suspicious #1)..checked intake and outlet hoses..all good. Fan turns on as soon as I start up (suspicious #2).....heater goes...as I turn on high to bring down temp..I suspect something happened from previous owner.....no water in oil...or radiator..any ideas any one?.

Not to sure whats going on there, thermostat most likely removed to help stop overheating issue, water pump could be an issue however the original copper radiators are notorious for the cores getting blocked causing them to run hotter than normal but if you have flushed it & flows fine then i can only think water pump. Sounds like fan has been hard wired on to help aid cooling but it could just have a stuffed switch.

I looked it up on the computer system at work today but had no listing for AA City
However you should be able to use a Dayco universal tap. looking in their catalog they have two that have cable 2 pipe with the 90 degree angle.
DHV5105 & DHV5202. Hope this helps.
