A minor update on the car.

I fixed a small wiring issue that caused the temp gauge to flutter intermittently. I bled the cooling system but I still have a few problems.
The fan is still not turning on. I checked the wiring and I can bypass the switch and it works fine. So it looks like I need another switch.
I let the car heat up to about a needle width below 3/4 on the temp gauge and coolant started to poor gently out of the cap on the overflow tank.
I've never seen this before. Last time I overheated a car the coolant burst out of the cap like steam.
I think I need a new cap. Any ideas? Anyone have a coolant cap from a early eta E30 over flow bottle?
