Engine Cooling problem

recently I have tried 4 times to renew the cylinder head gasket on my ford capri. Everytime I do it the car is difficuilt to start after, and a few seconds later the oil id full of water again. Can you tell me what I might be doing wrong.
i have had the head skimmed, I cleaned out all the stud holes, and tightened the studs in the right progresion, I am completely baffeled.

Did you have the head pressure tested when it was skimmed.?
