I have been reading the threads in here about overheating but here's my problem. My deuce was overheating and blew the head gasket, I redid the gaskets but it still was overheating, first I flushed the radiator which did not fix the problem a short drive on a 60 degree day would get the engine up to 200F, I did check the thermostat and it opens correctly. I then pulled the thermostat out completely and ran the truck and during a 15 min drive on a 70 degree day my engine hit 160F. This seems too hot, is the next step a water pump? Anywhere else that could be causing these problems? The radiator gets hot I did try to flush it out several times. I do have a new cap but did not put that on as the old one was holding pressure.
