radiator fans

hi ,, i replaced a water pump in my classic subaru and a thermostat , filled jer up with coolant slowly to stop any air locks , also squeezing the top and bottom radiator hose . when the car gets to temp the top radiator is solid and really hot , the bottom one is warm , now the fans kicked in and they won't turn of . is there something ive done wrong , ihavent got a clue , the only thing i can think off is if i put the thermostat in the wrong way , could this be the problem . any help would be cool , cheers vic .

Re: radiator fans

could be a air lock still,
was the water pump faulty before or have you swapped it for another reason,
I doubt you`d get the stat in the wrong way round, but you could pull the stat out to see if it sorts your issues,
was the stat genuine or a copy, I will never fit a cheap copy as they can stick.
Subaru servicing, repairs and diagnostic fault finding help available.
