I resolved my overheating issue which sounds very much like yours by lowering the water level in the radiator.

OK, I had to giggle. Of course I have done some stuff that made me say to myself - "self, why did I do that"?

Not strange if you think coolant coming out the overflow is an overheating problem, 50 some years ago I thought my A was overheating and it was just seeking its own level. A very common issue for newbee's, coolant level needs to be just below the baffle.
