Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this here today.

Make sure the water pump is rotating properly that the belt is on the correct way.This is usually why an over heat can occur after a belt change over like this here.If its rotating backwards this will cause this.

If this has already been checked and found o.k. let me know.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here.
