Yes, it could be clogged but wont cause the overheating. The radiator may be clogged as well.
Could heater control valve be bad due to intermininet heat from heater or caused by damaged drive belt which was chewed up pretty good?
Something locked up causing this. Take a close look at all pulleys especially the ac compressor
Drive Belt tensioner pulley only one that showed any sign of damage, either rock or bolt got kicked up onto pulley, I deburred with steel wool, ran cotton ball over area, no snagging, heater output interminent over last 3 weeks, now nothing?
No heat on either heater hose, new thermostat, heater valve on hose new, flushed heater core good, new heater hoses, heater valve open, no carbon detected from radiator, no water in oil...
