Default My new radiator on my 1991 acura legend keeps overheating?

I replaced a leaking radiator with no overheating problems until i put the new one in. I tried replacing my thermostat sending unit on the top of the engine and still no success. I have heat in my cab and the coolant is cold when the engine overheats.

The coolant is cold when the engine overheats? Try making sense.
