you have 3 options

buy a replacement 7m and hope it's a good motor
buy a replacement 7m and rebuild it
buy a replacement 7m and at least do the head gasket

it is more than likely rod knock
generally caused by engine running out of oil or possibly previous bhg and water got mixed in with the oil
or less common, oil pickup mesh/pump in the oil pan got jacked on, broken, then metal shards in your oil which then flogged out your rod bearings

good luck with the new motor (it may still be possible to rebuild yours but you will more than likely need another crank as yours may have taken a hiding)
Please use the forum to ask your questions as they will get replied to much faster than pming me
