With the engine off and key removed, find the two connector thermoswitch
located on the upper radiator hose inlet to the head. The connectors face
backwards toward the master cylinder. Remove the brown lead and touch it to
the other. This can be done at any temp. The fan should come on low and the
pump should run. Place your hand on the pump - you should feel it - you may
be able to eyeball the shaft to see if it turns...
