you've checked for vacuum leaks?

Hopefully, the head gaskets weren't installed backwards . .. Is it overheating?

could be timing, could be wires, there's a lot of stuff . ..

what have you checked so far?

You might want to pick up a Haynes or Chilton's manual and work through the troubleshooting sections.

It could be anything. If you're running it to the shop for the fusible link, have them look at the engine, too.
