I started it up, no issues, started to get a little warm and the thermostat dident open, I noticed that the fans are not on, I am pretty sure its hooked up to,

Any ideas.

What is "it" and how warm did it get ? The thermostat should begin opening at 188 and be fully open at 206. Fan(s) don't begin until 224 and go to high at 236. Did the top (long) radiator hose get hot ?? How about the lower hose which runs to the w/p inlet ?? Do you have a surge tank with a 5/8" purge hose running from the thermostat housing area to the top side of the tank, and does coolant spit out of the hose into the tank ?? You may still have a lot of air in the system from the HG job.

how do you get the air out?

Make sure the purge line isn't plugged and it'll bleed itself as you drive it.
