You might try flushing out the radiator, and check your hoses while at it. Hope that helps or you find a simple solution

Is the pump aftermarket or used? It could be faulty

Because if the bleed procedure does not work, then the pump isn't activating and coolant isn't flowing. And thus it will continue to overheat.

You can definitely hear the pump working if there isn't a lot of noise around. If you don't hear it, something is wrong. Could be as simple as the connector to the pump is not plugged in.
