is it running poorly? you've nailed it to a single valve? When was the overheat?

well it has been an ongoing problem i have already changed the radiator and the water pump but it still over heats when we go up hills and I think the timing is off as well i just recently changed the alternator and the the belt that goes around it.

If your timeing is off that will cause it to run hot. Have the timeing reset first
