Or short til that blue spark occur then u swop around negative on and arc positive,leave the ignition switched on arc til gauges move!! Don't ask me why but that happend to me!

SOURCE: overheating on ford bantam
there are three probable causes that may result to overheating one inadequate circulation of coolant within the cooling system. The radiator is clogged with dirt some stems are closed.try to flush the radiator using rad flushing fluid. Second improper bleeding of trap air within the cooling system. Third the water pump blades are worn out inadequate circulation of coolant.
