Your engine is out of time. If you had bent valves before the belt probably slipped or broke??? If when you put the new head on and re-timed it and put timing back to where it was you have it out of time again. My suggestion would be to get yourself a Haynes manual for your car and follow the timing procedure BEFORE you try to run it again. Your engine is an interference engine. That means that if the timing belt breaks you can bend valves. Also if you have it too far out of time you can bend valves.
