Even through you have flushed the radiator it may still be plugged, that old you may a good core and maybe able to have it rodded out, if not then I would replace the radiator.

Make sure all spark cables are connected to the right sparkplug. A cross wire like 4 and 8 will overheat even enough to make your fenders hot.
