EDIT: Temp is 240 when I say running hot
Check the wiring and make sure its good. The wiring tends to short right under that fusebox on the passenger side.
The second fan doesn't turn on till the engine gets pretty hot. Does it turn on when you turn the AC on?
Sounds like you may either have a stuck thermostat or bubbles in the cooling system. How did you bleed the air bubbles?
