1.3 overheating

Hey, I'm new to this forum, got a problem and looking for a little advice. I have an 86 Samurai, just replaced the water pump, thermostat, and intake manifold (it was cracked under the thermostat housing), fan clutch, and a few hoses. The thing is still overheating. Could this be the result of a bad head gasket? How can I determine for sure it's the head gasket? No coolant in the oil, or oil in the coolant. There seems to be a lot of pressure on the radiator hoses. Anybody have any ideas? I want to get back on the trails. Thanks.

Don't believe it's bad....not sure though...any way to tell for sure? Starting to think I just need a new radiator, when the temp gets high, I turn on the heat and it cools off.

Hmmm, sounds like a radiator is stopped up.
