If there was a head gasket problem there would be white smoke. You may have a water leak somewhere. Maybe a hose came off.

This particular model suffers with head gasket problems. I have had to replace head gaskets on several of these vehicles to solve the overheating problem. The two cylinders in the rear of the engine are the problematic ones. The head gasket goes bad in that area which sends combustion gas into the cooling system. This then creates air pockets which in turn causes the engine to run hot. The air pockets then shift and as water starts to circulate again, the temperature goes back down. This cycle repeats over and over.
Solution is to replace the head gaskets.

Even after replacing the radiator, thermostat and

The problem with overheat is due to poor coolant circulating. The main culprit is the Radiator. When the radiator is clogging up, coolant can't be circulating. The stagnant coolant inside the engine water jacket keeps absorb heat from combustion chambers having no way to dissipate the heat then the engine is overheated. You can test the water pump by removing the thermostat, then hooking everything back. Open the radiator cap, then turn on the engine to see if water flowing down to several small tubes inside the radiator. If water can't go down fast enough to cause over flow at radiator opening then your 90 Legend Radiator already got clogged up. Replace with a new radiator, not even a rebuilt one. Good luck.
