cooling system

Question for the cooling experts
i have installed a V-6 4.3 chevy engine with a 12" 24" x 2 inches thick custom made radiator with a electric fan in a 1972 MG midget. here is my problem. The more I run it the hotter it gets. Do I have a shrould/fan problem or a circulation problem. desperate for answers

my question would be do you already have a fan shroud, if not then you to fabricate one.
