if all is sealed well...your gasket seals water/oil to cooling but compression in the head/crack will give you bubbles..did you drill the thermostat to bleed the air?/did you bleed the air out? ..do you have hydrocarbons coming out of the radiator? or air? did you spay the gaskets with?copper coat/or even spray paint? were the heads straight...were the magnafluxed?

Best Answer Mark helpful
