very noisey after rebuild

working on a 75 914 for a friend. it has the 2.0 and f/i and looks all stock. it has a super noisey valvetrain. pulled valve covers and found left side (drivers side) to have collapsed lifters? you can pull the rocker arm out and in. I pulled the rocker arms and shafts and pulled the pushrods and tubes to access the lifters. tested them and they have no pressure escept for the spring inside. also found ports in the rockers (where pushrod meets rocker to rocker shaft) plugged with junk.

thoughts on cleaning rocker arms and reinstalling everything? or are my lifters crap?

supposedly the whole engine was just rebuilt a few years back but only 2K on it since then.
