Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

The thermostat is more often mounted inside the cast iron housing behind the hose connection. It would be where the upper radiator hose connects. There should be either two or three bolts to remove to access the thermostat.

If you have already done that and don't see one they may have been running without one.

Also look on that same cast iron housing where the upper hose connects for where the temperature gauge may have connected. You really need to get a working temperature gauge.
