After rereading your initial post I remembered you took the engine apart to do a head gasket then reassembled it and it ran ok for a short time. I would bet you overlooked something or adjusted the valves wrong or forgot a set screw (if there are any) when adjusting the valves...hydraulic lifters can be a PITA to get adjusted properly sometimes. Are you sure you let the lifters bleed down correctly when adjusting them? I would bet this is the problem and the rockers came loose in that short time due to something not 100% right with the valve adjustment....just my best guess...
