Sounds like he radiator may be plugged.Did you look down inside at the tube ends when you had it drained?
Does it look like the intake gasket was changed? Maybe somebody put the water crossover blocking plates at the wrong end of the motor.
You should be able to pull the thermostat and look in sideways to see if the coolant passage is open to the cylinder heads.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
