    Thanks folks. By the way, I went for a bit of a drive and when I came back I checked for cold areas on the radiator and it felt the same in all the areas I touched, in other words, no cold spots, just the same heatness (my own made up word) in all the areas. Just wondering if this means anything?

    Thats a good point. I can't see how the car is 'boiling' having only driven a few hundred yards ish but, I used the original gauge and an after market one and they both read the same. Good point though.

    Are the temp senders in the same place? if they are you mght have an air lock and they are in steam rather than water. Might be worth trying to bleed the system at various high points to be sure.
