Maybe a clogged radiator flush with a good cooling system flush or radiator fins clogged with dirt and bugs restricting air flow clean with garden hose and spray nozzle.

Check for a blown head gasket. If you've been running it at 240 and 260 degrees then it's most likely blown by now. The parts stores have testers for this
