I hate to be the guy who is asking for all the help all the time but I'm out of ideas. I thought I had it under control but riding into town today at lunch (5 miles) the gauge went to 250*!! slowly just crept up there the whole way. I was on the local state Hwy doing 50- 55 mph pretty much the whole way. On the way back to office I kept it a little slower doing about 45-50 and it was a little better but still way to hot at about 230*+ New radiator, new water pump, new hoses. I have taken the thermostat completely out to eliminate that possibility. The only thing I look at as being the problem is the heater hose I have from going from the pump directly to the intake manifold. (photo). I've been checking the oil for signs of coolant but none visible. What do y'all think?
