Before going too far....did you check your new thermostat before fitting? sometimes they are duds. boil up some water and put the 'stat in it and watch it opening ...or not Could be a blown gasket, but the bubbles would start even when turning the starter and the water cold. Sam

It's opening and circulating. Builds up pressure and pukes. I put a 18# rad cap and the rad started popping the dents out of the top tank. Scared me. The 7# cap just pukes. after warm up, I can watch the circulation with rad cap removed and it's not a smooth circulation kinda irradic.

The flow should not be erratic when the thermostat is open. The radiator should only be filled to about 1/4 " over the top of the core.

Is the belt slipping? Are you sure the thermostat is ok? Is the lower hose collapsing when you rev it up?

The lower hose isn't collapsing. Water is just above the core. I need to check the belt. It wasn't squealing but may not be as tight as possible. Thanks for the idea.
