Use a thermometer and make sure the gauge is reading correctly.
Make sure that you pressure cap is the right pressure for that engine and it is working correctly.
Make sure the belt on the water pump is tight and the radiator air side is clean.
What does the coolant side core look like?
Look for a collapsed lower hose when you rev the engine up. There should be a wire coil in the lower hose to prevent this from happening.
Make sure the timing is set correctly and the carb mixture is not too lean.
