99 4.0 overheating. Fixed a leak and now...

Ok so I am in a bind as I just fixed the truck and now it is overheating.

4.0 99 ford ranger 150k

It was leaking at the thermostat gasket.

I just took it off, cleaned, sealed with RVT sealer let sit 20 hours, filled with fluid and bam overheating.

Top hose has no fluid in it. I am guessing thermostat is stuck closed. I am not sure though.

I am picking up a new thermo right now, but I have to fix this tonight.

any suggestions would be great

Thanks in advance.
