Overheating...

Alright so I just finished replacing a clutch flywheel pressure plate and everything on the front suspension as well as the radiator. The day I get the car off the jacks I go for a drive and within 5 minutes the temp gauge is pegged in the red. I go home, bleed the coolant system per the helms and it took another 2 or so liters of 50/50... so I thought it was just an air bubble. Took it for a drive after that same thing again. Moved on to the thermostat this morning and just got back from a drive. It stayed in the middle of the gauge for much longer but then started climbing again... As soon as it climbs I turn the heat on full and it will usually drop it to just one tick above the normal temp. Any ideas?? The only thing throwing me off is that this car did not ever have overheating problems with its previous owner, a good friend of mine. And the only thing left in the cooling system is the water pump...

Thanks,
Matt T.
