It has only done this once and someone released a valve or something under the hood
Replaced the radiator, replaced and used a 180 thermostat instead of 195, and water pump. Whenever I drive either highway or back road the temp goes past the running temp(210) and gets to about 240ish and sometimes more. The a/c doesn’t work but the heat slightly does and gets warm just doesn’t blow out very hard, what could cause this??? And the clutch fan is running properly. Please help

I've had the system tested, the alternator charges the battery just fine, the alternator was bench tested at napa where I bought it. Tested 'good'. Replaced the plug from the harness to the alt.

My voltage gauge still goes crazy causing all my lights to dim. Only my sound system (radio 2 amps) is unaffected. Likely because it's on its own circuit.

I can't see any short or corroded connections on the harness, the battery holds a charge perfectly, starts with no hesitation etc.
I had a coolant leak in the rear part of the engine and it turned out to be a lower intake manifold gasket. I replaced the gasket and then the cast aluminum quick disconnect for the heater hose broke. I replaced the lower intake manifold and in the process messed up the timing. I attempted starting and the bad timing caused one of the bolts holding the starter on break causing the starter to be out of place. I replaced the bolts and got the starter set correctly and set the timing correctly by finding TDC. Now the issue is not getting enough power to the spark plugs. The coil pack isn't putting out enough power so I tried a new coil and nothing changed. I thought it was maybe the wiring except it's got new wires going to the coil. Any help is greatly appreciated.
This is a Chevy k1500 z71 5.7L V8 Vortec. I checked the freeze plugs and they were not damaged any.

1997 Chevy Silverado 1500 2 wheel-drive Automatic-
Was coming from bringing my wife from work,while driving the rear tires began to act as though I was running over speed bumps with only my rear tires. So I coasted it home, at about 20 mph or less, when home the engine had gotten above average temperature wise. So far I have changed the rear end gear oil, and yet the truck still seems to drive like the E-Brake is on after it warms up a bit. We've the brakes they seem to be fine, at this moment I just seem to be at a loss....Also when the truck is put into gear it doesnt do the normal roll for whatever gear its in like it once did.Should I replace the whole rear end, or Ive seen where it could be the bearings...Any advice would be greatly appreciated
