SOURCE: rocker arms
I'm, thinking you may mean cam rocker arms (lobe followers) and like the saying goes, "1 picture is worth a thousand words". These arms fit below cam shaft and sit over valve springs with a small round disc shaped spacer. These spacers are notched so the follower rest on valve. The other end of follower sits atop of the lash adjuster, The top of this adjuster is globed shaped to fit securely to the follower while allowing the correct lash adjustment by two hex nuts on the adjuster.
Confused yet? Well its not easier said than done. If you have access to a shop manual hopefully picture will help Good luck and I hope I have helped. Kam

SOURCE: Rocker arm failure
Did the timing belt break at one time? Aside from the obvious of it sounding like your son did what mine did and tried to race the vehicle beyond it's abilities if the timing belt broken at one time it may have damaged the valves. If the valve impacts the cyclinder it is possible that it can damage the rocker and cam. When you pull the head off this time have the head re-worked and valves replaced. This should solve the problem.
