Although not a cause of the fans not powering up, the radiator is a common cause of high running temps and pegged temp gauges at an idle. The fans should come on when the A/C is running. Do they?
PS: At 4 hrs to diagnose this issue, I'd say your mechanic is overestimating the diagnostic time. This is a one hour job for someone who knows these cars. And if he's the guy who installed the motor he probably should be a bit more benevolent.
