Your radiator has just let go and because all the water has drained out then your water pump has dried up and started knocking.
You need, Radiator, waterpump, timing belt kit, cam cover gasket, antifreeze, oil and filter at the very least. Also due to the overheating I would advise that the sump be dropped and the big end shells examined/replaced as that was probably the rattling. Whilst in at the cams ensure that the lobes are not wearing, this is easily done by visually inspecting the edge of the cam lobe where there SHOULD be a 1mm step down to the unmachined material, scuffing on the top of the tappets also indicates swarf in the oil which will need flushing out.
