Can a hanging thermostat cause a new radiator to blow in just a couple of hours?

Possibly. Especially if it was installed back wards. Or could just be a bad new radiator. I've installed several new radiators over the years in different Z's and have never had a problem though. Those new radiators are really flemsy though. Didn't you get a warrenty with yours? If so, try another one.
Good luck!

no. its can not. andy is wrong

a bad "radiator cap" (whats the proper term for a cap not on the radiator?) can.

put the thermostat in backwards and the system will just boil. its not like the pump makes 987235 psi of pressure
