As far as running hot, you need to drain ALL air from coolant system by going to highest point in system and bleeding the cooling system. I believe there is a screw/valve for this purpose.
Easy to screw up timing so you need to ensure you did not screw up the timing/teeth positioning of the cam shafts. When I did my head gasket I carefully marked positioning with scratches that I filled in with ink. I then placed tiny zip ties in the chain to define even more clearly.
In your case, you are past all that, so you need to go to TDC/Top dead center, and re-check cam-shaft positioning. TDC is easy to find... You pull the #1 plug and place a brand new long pencil in there and turn the engine manually via the crank bolt. When the pencil is at its highest position it is either at TDC or 180 degrees off. Cam Shafts will then tell you which of the 2 it is. Use a new wood pencil that is NOT sharpenned. That avoids issues.
