Just to update everyone..
Pulled radiator and there seems to be ample flow judging by how quickly it
Pulled water pump, impeller connected to shaft.
Going to re-assemble and attach an electric pusher fan just to see if that
Going to retry the combustion test and pull out the pressure tester as well.
Not going to drive it tho'...

air/fuel mixture. Plus, I seem to recall you've already checked to see that
the thermostat is opening at the specified temperature? The only other thing
of which I can think is the possibility that the rebuilder did not hot tank
the head and block. Certainly a check of the radiator and water pump should
be done first. I was just thinking, too, that the difference in temperature
from the top of the radiator to the bottom might reflect a blockage that is
not allowing the water in all or portions of the radiator to pass through.
