Check compression, maybe top gasket got blown. why did you replace the radiator and thermostat ?

It was losing water from radiator and overheating. After putting a new radiator on it was still running hot, so therefore the new thermostat. Now it's bck firing n will barely run. !!!! Oil doesn't look milky but will it always look milky if heads r cracked r blown??

no not always, it can blow the water to the oil or compression to the water ports as well, do compression test it will show you what cylinder is blown
