    thermostat, it might have froze shut. If the car has sat for a shile this is even more likely. but you installed a new thermostat, and you probably flushed the coolant system in the process of doing that. but there is no flow so, flsuh the radiator one more time and see that water flows fine. my answer is I don't know.
