I recently went through a head gasket, when I let my brother install it, he forgot to punch out the holes in the new head gasket before installing it.
So I went back in and did the head gasket correctly. Afterwards, I flushed the entire cooling system (a bunch of junk came out) then buttoned it back up. I ended up replacing the radiator, the water pump and all the gaskets. I just added an electric fan and got rid of the stock fan clutch.
I started it up and it ran fine, let it get to operating tempature and it held nicely. So I decided I would go around the block a few times to test it out.
I was about 3 miles away from my house, and I started to notice the temp gauge was rising.
I went another mile before the temp guage made me worry enough to pull over.
I took my towell and slowly opened up the radiator and noticed that there was NO WATER inside.
When I filled it back up, it was very slow to start. I then revved it up from the engine bay and saw that water was spitting out the overflow tube.
What does this mean? I have replaced the radiator, fan, water pump, fluids, and gaskets.
The timing is at 10* TDC and has no smoke.
