You could have a air bubble in the system
Pull it on a slight grade , open the rad and keep pouring antifreeze into it till full

Did you change the thermostat as well? How is the coolant temperature? If its too low due to a sticking thermostat, also the heater output will be lower.

yes i change the thermostat and the temp gauge reads right on truck never overheats and i bleed the system no air

Then what spyder said could be the problem, an air bubble somewhere in the heater core or lines, preventing a good flow through the heater core. Did you remove the bleeder plug when filling the cooling system? Also when the radiator was partly plugged, the same could be the case with the heater core. Did you reverse flush that one as well?

what do you mean reverse the flush sorry i am not sure about that and yes i removed the bleeder plug spyder

I would still try leaving it run and watch the level . Air pocket can be a pain to get out.

sorry what do mean by reverse flush

Reverse flushing means that you let the flush water go against the normal flow direction. Any debris which is blocking the heatercore internally, could get out in this way. Would there be anything blocking the core internally, it would not come out when you flush it in the same direction as the coolant flows.
But as spyders says, start with the most simple action now and be sure that no airpocket(s) are left behind. Other action could be taken when you are sure that this is ok.

i just finish flushing and reverse flushing and clean out lines on heater core everything was clean not dirt in line or radiator and that did not fix problem there is a little warm coming out of vents but not hot air so not sure what is wrong
