I'm Jannie from South Africa. My Anglia is overheating and I have done everything.
Cleaned radiator and replaced cap. Timing is correct. New thermostat and it is working, new water pump and hoses. I have fitted an 10" electrical fan in front of radiator. Direction is correct. New 4 blade fan on engine side. Fanbelt is not slipping.
Will appreciate any help or suggestions.

Have you tried using one of the indirect reading thermometers?
That way you can see what temperatures you have along the cooling route from thermostat housing to radiator top and bottom and return temperature.
Not familiar with the Ford Anglia - what motor?

Hi Jannie - check out this forum for English Ford enthusiasts in North America -

I would love to own a 100E Anglia some day!

1962 would be a 997cc,or 1200 (105E/123E).
And I agree - try the enfostuff forums.
Good luck.

You could also try posting your question in the Ford First UK models forum, it doesn't get much traffic but I'm hoping to change that grinning smiley
