Re: 97 powerstroke overheating/ no interior heat...heater hoses not hot but the top radiator hose is
to remove all doubt, you could run without a thermostat just as a test to see if it still gets too hot.
if it still gets too hot, I'd suspect radiator or waterpump, even with a factory clutch fan hardly spinning you should have enough air flow, so I wouldn't suspect a fan issue.
