Ytlas,is right,the only other thing,would be if you used some block or radiator sealer,in the engine before you repaired all you did,this stuff will clog the water port,s in the head,and not let the water circulate right.

Remove radiator cap,crank car,give it a few minute,s for the thermostat to open ,and see if water is circulating in the radiator,if not circulating good.
