is the air dam still below the radiator ?? that scoop can get wrecked after many chassis scraps with the concrete blocks. also be sure u bled out all the air from the top hose bleeder valve.

Could be a bad water pump,either the vanes are corroded or the seals are leaking air into the system but not bad enough to leak coolant. These engines need a thermostat, otherwise they will overheat due to the fact that the coolant is moving too fast through the radiator that proper heat transfer cannot happen.

Agree with tennisshoes, also you need a 50/50 mix of antifreeze...Not just water.

Sounds like you may have a clogged rad, rust build-up in the water passages of the block, or a bad water pump. There is definitely air in the block, also causing rad fluid not to flow properly. A good block and rad flush are in order, as well as a new water pump.
