    93 ranger slowly overheating?!?!

    Just got a 93 ranger for cheap w/ 151,000 on it 4x4 5 speed not much of a ford person but its a really nice truck. The reason I got it was to fix it and sell it( I want to buy a 93 and up silverado) Anyway it has a slow overheating issue, ive already replace the fan clutch and t-stat the radiator is new and so it the water pump. Before replacing the tstat and fan clutch it would heat up in about an hour and you when it was overheating I could just rev it and it would cool down(fan clutch). Now it takes about 2 hrs and driving it on the hwy to heat up and start boiling the coolant. I felt the radiator and its very hot on the top and cold on the bottom r/side and the lower radiator hose is as hot as the top and the heater doesnt work. So does that mean the radiator is clogged or possibly the water pump? I'm at a stand still right now... any ideas guys???

    try going to a car wash and using the pressure hose to wash it. from the engine side out. i have seen radiators and such get dirty and plugged not letting air through or just take it out and have it boiled out at a radiator shop.
