its an 89 ford 5.0L , new clutch,new rad , flushed the system amd it was clean! im running with no thermostat, hoses are all good, im confused can see it being because of no thermostat that should make it last longer?

Mine did the same thing. Same specs as yours too, only my Rad is brand new because the new WP I put on had the shaft snap and it ran the fan right through the rad. So far it's holding up!
