If the water pump failed and caused the pump to loose timing then I agree with Andy and the cam prolly went out too.

You may have cratered lifters and/or bent valves causing low compression/hard starting.

Again, did they check the cam/lifters for damaged? These are INTERFERENCE engines. If the cam goes out of time more than a few degrees the valves hit.
