Running lean or rich will run hot. You can make your exhaust glow either way. You need to determine the operating temperature of your engine before you tear into it. If you don't want to get into it. Grab a hold of your radiator at operating temperature. If it burns you, then you have heat. Grab the hoses going into the heater core and compare the hotness. Not so hot, you need to find out why. If I had to guess, the silly gate valve on the back of the engine is closed.
