It is possible that the thermostat was installed backwards. Some of them will go in either way. The "bulb" goes towards the engine.

If it has been overheating since you did a flush sounds like you are not getting all of the air out of cooling system. Google how to remove air from cooling system should be a video showing you how to do it.

I agree with both the above, getting air out of these sometimes can be daunting, as this a sideways engine you may have to run the passenger side up on a ramp or jack it up and block it so the air will go to the highest point and hopefully bubble out. If you still can't get it you may have to have it pressure bled.
