My 96 fairlane cooked and done a head gasket. Have fixed gasket but car still running hot, running temp of 115 C. New 92c thermostat, radiator cap and swapped radiators. Engine runs fine just really hot. Any ideas?

First thought was thermostat -but you've done that,the radiator could be blocked -are the fans working flat out?

You said it cooked and then done a head gasket but you didn't say why it cooked?-like what was the initial issue that caused it to overheat?
There's either a blockage in the cooling system or maybe water pump is forked.

Cheers Johnny.
