Default Need help with 1988 2.3L engine.

First off, greetings fellow Ranger enthusiasts. I've just replaced a blown head gasket on my 88' 4x4. (blown between 2/3). Everything else was fine when I took the motor apart. It started right up with a good smooth Idle. The problem is it won't accelerate above about 500 rpms. Any thoughts as to what I might have messed up, things to check. Thanks for any help, Mike.
