1. Did you change the radiator to an equivalent tropical one to the one you had in there?
2. It is always advisable to change your thermostat after doing any kind of major work on your cooling system.
3. What was the new radiator filled with? Check your manual I believe that in tropical climates you need a slightly higher mix of water to anti-freeze (yes anti-freeze) (70-30 split if I remember correctly).
