Take it apart again and check/replace the seals.

Did you put an OEM Honda water pump in?

yes it is possible.Check your plugs and see if there is any difference between the right and left side color and appearance.

thanks for the info. it was the head gasket right between the cylinder bores the gasket was blown apart on the right side. i dont know why because i just replaced both of them 8000 miles ago.someone did say that it was a weak spot. should be back running by saturday. thanks again
