Could be air in the system, defective water pump-check if its functioning, also the oil does it looks milky?

The head gasket was replaced, oil is fine, what I have done recently was added a 3" spacer on the radiator fan, which brought the fan closer to the radiator.(Question)- do I still need a fan shroud? If so where can I find a replacement shroud, thank's bud.

Dunno where, but you could be needing the shroud-don't work get it block and pressure tested to find out more what's going on.
