We need a better description of the sound - is it really a dinging sound or
is it more like a ticking? Does it get quieter or fade away as the engine
warms up? And did you set the valve clearances when you reassembled it?

(Also, it is bad form to post in all capitals... it's considered
"shouting.")

---------------------

It will 'burp' out some air in the first few trips, so be sure the rad
is full to the top, and reservoir needs to be full to MAX line. Don't
put any tap water (Hondacide) in there. Air in the system can throw off
engine temp sensors / confuse the computer.
