Question about Cars & Trucks
All depends on where the leak is. Could also be a blown head gasket.
The temp gauge does not read because there is no liquid for it to measure.

does the fan come on when supposed to? you could hook your fans to a toggle switch and run them manually from start to finish this may help. also did you bleed the system after replacing these parts and purge all air from cooling system? is the coolant coming out of the resovoir hose?

Blown head gasket resulting in super heated water (pegging gauge) then creating excessive pressure and blowing the hose off. Take the cap off and rev it and if it shoot water out like Old Faithful that's the problem.

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

Probably not water pump. Engine is notourious for vapour lock.
Cooling system must be blead of air before thermostat will work. Cool bottom rad hose is a dead give away. If you are still watching this forum reply , and I will walk you through the only way I know how to make it work properly. It's actually easy if you do it my way. I have worked on lots of cars , and this engine was the hardest to bleed out. Did one Yesterday , and works perfect.
