DODGE DART RADIATOR PROBLEM

1965 Dodge Dart • 90,000 miles

Why dose a 1965 Dodge dart gt 273 4.5 L Automatic trans. Has overheating problems?

I don't know why my '65 dart is overheating. It has a new original radiator, timing chain and pinions, water pump, 180 degree thermostats, lifter's, water hoses, spark plug's, gasket head set, thermal fan clutch, the belt's, temperature sending unit sensor, water pump bypass hose, radiator cap 14 lbs, rotter condenser point gap's, distributor cap, spark plug wiring, oil and filter; everything is brand new and it has 50/50 coolant, and it is still overheating. The temperature goes up to 200 ยบ F and maintains there. That is all I have change on the dart regarding overheating problems.

Thank you for your time, I hope ill get a quick feedback from you guys.

200 is not bad. Lower the thermostat to 160 and see what happens.
