Yes, I have the air bleeder installed from specialT-works great.  Shouldn't this prevent any air that may be trapped in the system and shouldn't it be self bleeding?
Again everything works fine, fans come on when they are supposed to and does not overheat.
However no thermostat is installed-I don't what to leave it that way...
Once I install the thermostat (the right way of coarse) it begins to overheat @ about 175F. No water in coolant pipe where to otterstat is located, no water circulation and fans do not come on-because no water in that pipe.  Hoping a 3rd thermostat is the trick--can't think of anything else.

You're air-locked at the radiator. Take off the top vent hose at the 
radiator (passenger side top) until coolant starts to flow. Then 
follow the bleeding procedures in the manual.
