95 Chevy s10: 4.3, 2whl, auto, 205xxx miles

Resolved Question:

'95 Chevy s10, 4.3, 2whl, auto, 205xxx miles. this truck has a hot box on the back for delivering pizza. the trans has been rebuilt (6mo), water pump, trermostat, radiator and cap were replaced recently. the hot box and cab are not getting warm enough as they use to. recently the new radiator split open and was replaced last week. the new radiator is now building too much pressure and pucking antifreeze and we fear will split the new radiator. I think it has something to do with coolent flow in the engine, like head gasket front flow restricters gone allowing the front of the engine to get too hot. Am I on the right track?
