You have to get the special tools so you can lock the camshafts and crankshaft so you can get this all set up correctly. I assume you don't have or didn't follow the instructions to do this job properly, and this is the kind of thing that happens. If you're not careful you can damage the engine, so either get the repair manual and the tools or have a professional take care of this for you.
