might want to run a compression test on engine to make sure all the cylinders are still ok. have seen fresh rebuild burn valves on new heads

Little more info needed. Like, did it ever run good? Does it smoke? Are you sure about timing belt installation and distributor timing? Does it start easy? Does it run hot or cold? Does the motor shake more than normal?
( as to crvett's comment: cmon man, are all the holes still ok)
