Buy a noncontact thermometer(infrared) at Home Depot and such and take reading of the upper and lower temp at the radiator metal. There should be no more than a 10 degree difference. I suspect you have a bad radiator.
Was the engine overheated at all , BEFORE you changed the pump& stat?
yes it was overheating,and i don,t see no leak and there is no cooling in my oil
