Ventrac 4200 overheating

Currently using ventrac 4200 vxd 31hp turbo diesel with blower attachment. Before posting this i searched threads to get some help. i checked and cleaned out the screen over the rad. and i took the hood off and it seemed to help. the problem is the temp guage starts to jump from 190-250 then the alarm goes off. also the overflow tank completely fills up and starts overflowing. then when the machine cools down i check the radiator and the fluid is low. so i refill and the problem continues. we recently changed the thermosatat and it didnt reallly change anything. it seems as if something is clogged and the rad is backing up... anyone hear of anything like this or have any help?? thanks

Yep, radiator could be all fouled up that is possible I've heard of that before, may need a new one...other than that, I wouldve said the thermostat but if thats replaced it almost has to be the radiator itself. I could be wrong so check with a dealer
