the fan clutch is failry easy to check. start the car when it is cold and see if the clutch is disengauged. you should be able to stop the fan with your hand but be careful with that. and let it warm up and make sure that the ckutch engauges when it gets hot. however if the thermostat isn't opening then the clutch won't engauge because it goes off the air temp from the rad. you might check that you have flow in the system from the water pump. and also make sure ther are no air pockets in the cooling system. did you take all the bleeder screws out when you filled up the engine after the rad. install?
another thing, i don't mean to sound like i'm insulting your inteligence but did you make sure to install the thermosta correctly if it was put in backwards it would not open. and on some there is actualla top and bottom, they usually have arrows to show top and bottom.
