Default New long block.....water issues(air issues)?

I installed a complete long block from ssi. I got it all back together, but my fans are running constantly, my temp gauge has no read out, and my thermostat isn't opening. I had a stant oem style new one, and I took it out and replaced it with my year old oem subaru one, and I've still got the same issue.

I actually pulled the sending unit back out, stuck a screw driver down the hole and it's completely drive. So....I cranked the motor over until I got water coming out of the port figuring it'd be a way to bleed the system. But alas, still no t-stat function, or temp gauge read out.

It's an 01' automatic forester btw.

Thanks in advance for any tips or ideas.

Make sure your coolant temp sensors are plugged in. They're hard to get to so often overlooked. They're located on the water pipe under the intake. You can access the plugs from the passenger side at the back of the intake beside the pcv valve.
Also turn off your defrost and a/c. And as far as bleeding I usually don't have a problem with the n/a engines. Just fill it up through the radiator and fill the resevoir bottle about an inch and a half above the full mark.

Does the gauge read off the temp sensor just below the alternator on top of the block?
