    there was a whole timing kit on ebay i saw once for a 1000 bucks. But may i ask why you want a whole timing kit? I feel like these motors do not wear those components out if taken care of.

    I believe your motor is over 300K, but I know when I got into mine, eberything was in great shape. I don't know of any rebuild kits unfortunately.

    come to find out the engine is not the original engine. so I have no idea. it does have at least one blown head gasket. and now it acts like it has little to no compression

    Have you considered just an engine swap?
