    Also check for a stuck, or improperly installed thermostat, or a stuck, closed, exhaust manifold heat riser valve. Hope this helps.

    Are you sure it is overheating? Have you checked the temp with an cooking thermometer? Or an infared thermometer? I have seen the upper radiator hose collapse, causing overheating. I would still check the cooling system for combustion gasses, just to make sure that it is not a crack, or failed head gasket, or warped head. Weren't champion heads susceptible to cracks? Just a few thoughts.
