Thought of something else today, it should have hit me right away but somehow it just didn't register... Are you certain that you have the timing correct? I assume you had the cam gear removed when you took off the head, because you kind of have to. If the chain slipped a tooth on the sprocket it would do almost exactly what you have described in the first post.
