It's the 2 wire switch in the lower right side of the water manifold, below the thermostat. The single wire switch is for the temperature gauge. You can pull the connector from the the switch and jumper the connectors to verify that the fan is working. I had an issue with my 1980, the push on connectors on the plug where not making a good connection. Those bullet style wire connectors get loose. I actually removed the switch and soldered wires to each terminal and connected it that way, never had another issue.
