Start it and put a thermometer in the radiator and see what the temp gets up to, if it starts to puke coolant, check the temp at that point.
You could have a bad head gasket or something else adding presure the to cooling system.

|T-bucket23||If the engine is getting hotter than the thermostat rating it really doesnt matter what rating it has, something else is wrong. If it boils over with a 190 its still goingto boil over with a 160, just a little slower maybe.|

What kind of fan and are you running a shroud on the fan.
What kind of car is it. How hot does the gauge read.
What is the timing set at.

Hi did you check the thermostat? boil test it to see if it opens at the proper degrees, its a crate motor everything internal should be good, l run a big block and l found that the 3 core made it run hot, sitting still so l but a 4 core in it and has been run fine for about 2 years now, new motor make more heat until broke in, big block with blower well theres alot of heat, hows about water pump pulley size? or is it electric? there are people on here that will answer your question better if you give all the specs and work from there, just a thought. TROY
