the timming chain and cover problem,rubbing against the cover

This is the second time in 5yrs since it happened. Me and a friend bought this truck when he showed it to us it had the same problem. We fixed it by taking the engine a part, then we bought all the gaskets and timing chain and other parts related to it, plus oil and anti freeze too. Then the latest problem happen three weeks ago. I was coming back from the market when it just guitar on me I had to get it towed which cost 80.00 dollars. Then I started taking it apart that is when I noticed the water in the oil, so I knew what it was I did not know how bad until I got it apart and found out it took out the rockers to so I had to get them to witch cost alone 500.00 dollars. Plus so far the cost is 600.00 dlrs, because I had to get the head checked out to. You better get this problem fixed and fast before someone gets killed got it. You need to configure your timing cover, plus put your water jacket in a different place. So this problem happens again, and use kevlar for your timing guides so the don't wear out so fast.because it is costing alot of time and money to fix this problem. It is a pain in the neck plus costing me down time. And trying to get rides to and from work, witch is costing money to for gas to.

Yes to fix it i need money. Which you should supply to the customer, because I need this vechile to get around. If i get it fix then I will be on the street. So as soon as you send the money, then I can fix the truck. Or send all the parts I need to fix it which is from the oil pan, head, and timing cover. Plus oil, filter, anti freeze, air cleaner to because it was all soaked to. I need a new timing set, head set, oil pan set and timing cover plus cover gasket set to.
