I would make sure the belts are tight and not slipping, with that mileage I would just replace all the belts. The water pump could also be bad. I would also put the proper thermostat in, check it first in a pot of boiling water to make sure it does work correctly

Well I think you are at that point to replace the water pump. It is a simple repair all that has to done is rmove 4 bolts from the pully and then 4 bolts on the water pump and replace the pump. US AUTOPARTS sell new water pumps for less than $30 and that i'm shure that is less than you spent so far. Good luck.:b01:

Check on your core support a wire that is attached to a fastner that is bolted down......If you have you engine open and your standing and looking at your engine it is on your left....Michael aka Have Bullitt will travel had the same problem, did the same things you did except the head gaskets and it was that darn wire....It has something to do with grounding the fans and cooling system....His came off, he discovered it was off, reconnected to the fastner and it stopped overheating.....Hopefully this is your problem.....Simple fix I hope......
