I put new head gaskets on my 93 Chevy ck1500 5.7,put it back together the TB is shooting flames,I know the timing is off where do I go from here,wont start

Set cylinder 1 to TDC on compression stroke, remove distributor and reset to stock marks. Generally there are timing marks for this. If you cannot locate the timing marks then note the direction that the rotor under the distributor cap rotates and reinstall it so it's pointing right at the cylinder 1 contact or just barely before when cylinder 1 is at TDC. That may get you close enough to start it. Then you will need a timing light to adjust the timing to the proper spec.

In the future mark the distributor cap and housing position relative to manifold or block prior to removal. Makes re-assembly a breeze.

I had a cracked head and I replaced it and got the other one resurfaced and put it all back together but it runs horrible and my cadilytic converter glows red after it runs for about five minutes. Its

Catalytic converter glows red usually when its having to work way overtime, meaning something is wrong with the way its using gas.
For some reason a lot of gas is getting into your Converter. This would be because the fuel is not being burnt in your engine. This occurs for 1 of 2 main reasons. Timing is off or spark is not there.
If its running really rough then you might want to check the spark plugs otherwise you may need to adjust timing and check cylinder compression. If timing is right and it still runs rough check which spark plug wires are going where. (They may be in the wrong order.)
If compression is bad and timing is right the engine was not rebuilt right or spark is not happening. With this it could be a whole host of things I would take it back to whoever rebuilt it and ask them. Need a lot more information to diagnose. Let me know how I can help.

Put rebuilt head on now engine smokes and has aqlot of blow by

any time you put a new or rebuilt head on top of a used motor you are going to get some sort of blow by. the more miles one the Rings the more blow by you will have. when you put on the rebuilt head south the new valves. you increased the compression ratio. thus making the worn rings from being able to hold back all the compression. next time at least drop the pan and put new rings in. better new pistions and hone the cylinders. best pull the block have it bored .20 over (which gives you a 2.0L ) have the crank turned. have the cams inspected for ware. and just replace old with new. yes.its more expenses in the beginning but well worth it. because look were you are now. to fix it you now have to start over with a lighter wallet
