Hard to tell what's up here, but I fear that your head gasket is blown, allowing percolated exhaust gases to raise temps at the gauge sender, but not sufficient heat transfer to the fan switch. Can't remember if these old ones had TWO ac/fan relays...check that too.

help me ,i havent another car and i like it
