your timing appears to be out. DO NOT TURN THE ENGINE OVER until it is corrected. How did you time it? did you not set it to TDC and confirm the marks all lined up before removing the head to change the seals?

if you have rotated it any more than a 1/4 turn, then you may have problems.

You need to read the manual carefully and work out what you have done wrong, and re-assemble it all properly. If you need to turn the engine any more than a 1/4 turn, you will need to remove the camshafts so all the valves are closed, otherwise you will hit them with the pistons and cause serious damage.

some valves will still be open due to where the cam lobes are sitting. 1 tooth out of alignment is enough to bend valves in these engines.

All the valves will be shut before you fitted the cams, once you fit them, then some valves will open.

take cams out, set engine to TDC on correct cylinder according to the manual, check the cam gear to camshaft alignment, refit the cams in the correct positions. Removing the cams is the only way you can turn the engine without bending valves.

Read the manual and follow its procedure to set the timing.
