Default cracked block? warped head? what?

OK, i just got done redoing my engine, becuase of a blown head gasket....

put the new head gasket on, trqoue everything down...

got it all back in... tryin to crank it, no start..

so i take out a spark plug and crank it again, and water starts going everywhere..

so i am gettin water from my radiator, into the combustion chamber..

when you redid your headgasket, did you resurface the head? the machine shop usually does an inspection of the head at that time

Get a thicker gasket to lower cmpression. Might look for a crack in the intake since you'll have it off. Is there water in all the cylinders or just one?
