I hate to break the news, but it sounds like your engine over heated to the point where it seized and cracked the head, which is what the aluminum piece may be. I would call the person you purchased the truck from and ask for your money back. In California, ( where I live ) the vehicle has to be ok for at least 10 days so someone can't sell you a lemon.
