Sounds like thermostat is stuck closed.

Sorry I didn't read the title on your post. Sounds like head gasket with the milky oil.

Whoever replaced the radiator should have investigated further- I hope it isn't a blown head gasket, but here's what you do- that is a cool little car, so it is worth fixin' up- find a GOOD mechanic in a GOOD garage and have them tell you what it needs- there ARE some honest mechanics out there-

Since the compression check shows even compression across all cylinders is it possible that it is a cracked head or block. Thank you for your suggestion to seek a good mechanic.
