So, get some hose clamps and adaptors and connect up a garden hose. Turn the water on and it should go right through the block without a lot of resistance. Same thing with the radiator.
If they are blocked, the garden hose in reverse may flush stuff out, and you can always use the acid flush and see what that brings out. Unfortunately if the system is kept sealed up by mineral deposits, when you clean those deposits out everything will start leaking so the acid flush is kind of a last resort to my mind.
And don't forget to check for a damaged or missing thermostat of course. --scott

I am betting you clogged up the radiator. If its old just replace it. thats what your symptoms tell me anyway. KB

A 66 Mustang is not capable of having a strange overheating problem. That would be like having a strange shoelace changing problem.
