Have the head oringed buy new bolts and save the money that studs cost.

Hey can anyone help me? Me and my buddy replaced a head gasket on my 95. After we put everything back together the motor ran great. I went to go drive yet after adjusting the valves and my drivetrain is locked up what would cause this to happen?
We took the valve cover off and when we did the oil smelled horrible.And the engine stop wanting to crank

The truck is telling you stop please I am not okay. Did you torque the headbolts to spec? Are they TTY bolts? Or studs. Did you torque them down in the correct sequence? Sounds like your engine is starting to make a milkshake for you and your friend. Do a leak down test and pray that the antifreeze hasn't eaten your rod bearings.
