Overheating engine. I Recently took my 1959 Ford Skyliner to a mechanic To fix transmission and engine leaks. In addition, the mechanic installed power brakes and changed my generator out for a 90 amp alternator. Since then, my car Overheats. The gauge goes past the H sign Even after driving for a few miles. Is there any correlation between the work that was done in my car now overheating excessively? The car only has 2000 miles on it. Original rebuilt engine.

I recently bought a new radiator just in case that will do the trick.
