How is it running?? It may be running lean (too much air not enought fuel) causing it to run hot.Or it could be a blockage in the cooling system.Do the fans run? You say uve changed the bits but you dont say weather they come on or not?

Ok back to basics, Does it have Water AND Anti-freeze? You need antifreeze especially in the winter but many people dont realised it contains anit-rust agents AND doesnt boil at 100degrees, When water boils it has airbubbles in it which do not help the cooling and less water it physically in there.

Remove thermostat completely (You dont need it unless your a jessy in the cold weather tease ) - This removes one possible fault, It sounds like you may have a blockage OR airleak.

Feel all hoses once engine is 'hot' and you will be able to identify a blockage.

Airblock - Turn heaters on full whack, remove cap off headertank, locate the top radiater hose and squeeze release squeeze until you see bubbles appear in the header tank

Or check the sponserslink laugh

Remove the wiring plug from the Thermo-Switch (Fan Switch) and bridge a piece of wire across the two contacts with the ignition on, if the fans kick straight in then the Thermo-Switch is faulty. If the fans dont kick in then check the fuses.

Let me know what the result is.....
