overheating

My son has a 88 Mustang 5.0 We had to bypass the heater core and since we did this job the engine overheats, the first thing we thought of was a air lock so we refilled the system and also remove the top rad hose to fill the top of the engine with water but still overheats. the second thing we thought it maybe was a faulty thermastat so we removed and refilled but still overheats. when the engine was cool we filled rad slowly and noted the water in rad was turning warm and circulating. PLEASE HELP....THANKS

Re: overheating

How did you bypass the heater core exactly (it might give a clue to the cause) and why (I'm just curious)?

Re: overheating

we disconnected at the firewall and made up a Uturn type hose, no kinks very smooth, one end is 5/8 and the other end is 3/4
