YOU HAVE A THERMOSTAT THAT IS OPENING AT 195 (TO HIGH) TRY REPLACING IT WITH A 160 DEGREE IT WILL ALLOW THE SYSTEM TO FLOW MORE FREELY, ALTHOUGH THE HEAT WILL TAKE A BIT LONGER TO HEAT UP, THE ENGINE WILL STOP OVER HEATING. YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT FROM BEGINNING.

Over heating replace cam thermo and head gasket


If the cooling system had enough pressure to blow off the top radiator hose, you may have a cracked head or block.
I would take the thermostat out and run the engine without it to see how hot it gets and how much pressure it builds up. Be sure and check the radiator cap too.
