1st you need to get rid of the 8 bolt water pump by changing the timing cover to the newer style. Then you will start to cure your problem. Check your timing, to advanced will cause it to overheat. You need to let us see your engine & what you have for fan, rad. as that will make a difference .  You say it's stroked,, to what ??? Are you using water or anti-freeze & water. What temp T-stat do you have in the engine? We need a lot more info to help you.
