Generac Generator broken rockerarm

Long story... so here's the short version. Bought knowing about it. The guy welded it and worked awhile. What would cause this problem? Got new arm and found slight bent push rod too, have 1 coming. Suggestions? Can I just replace the arm and push rod and be done with it? Of course adjust the valves. Thanks, Craig

I would just replace the pushrod and rocker arm and carry on. Have seen the same problem on older engines that have been sitting for a long time and the valve has siezed . Large diesels will bend pushrods with excessive RPM.
