have the same problem?

I removed the valve covers today to start checking for the obvious, and I found it. I have a bent push rod on the #2 exhaust, the rocker arm bolt is broken, and so is the end of the rocker arm support (rocker pedestal or rail) whatever the correct term is for the bar they rest on. I applied enough pressure to the valve to make sure it wasn't stuck, I was able to depress it with little effort, so I don't suspect a bent valve. I don't know a whole lot in this area, and need to know what my next step should be.
