rocker shaft dropped out -questions

I just had an unexpected surprise, and need some guidance please. I just removed my left lower valve cover on a 2.2/914 to try and solve an oil leak and out dropped a rocker shaft, conical bushing and nut. Being a rookie, I crawled as fast as I could over to Wayne's bible to see what it was in my hand. But before I try anything, I thought I'd consult the PP Oracle.

Questions:
[1] Can I simply reinstall this as per Waynes rebuild procedure?
[2] Should I be looking for/expect other damage? The engine just came off a 3-day vintage race w/e, seeming to run OK, though it is noticably tired after 3 seasons [rebuild scheduled after two more races].
[3] Other than Wayne's instructions, is there anything else I should consider for reassembly?
[4] Could this explain an on track only left side oil leak?

Many thanks,
Gavin
