Why can't you do a compression test? The rocker arms and push rods don't hold the valves closed, the valve springs do. You can test for compression, because whatever valves that are associated with the broken rocker arms and push rods are now closed, and can't be opened. All the pushrods and rockers do are open the valve, the valve spring closes it.
I'd be willing to say that yes you have some piston damage, but maybe not.
Diesel pistons are tougher than gas pistons. There is always the chance that you could have broken a piston top edge and that will be floating around scarring your cylinder walls if you attempt to fire it without checking compression.
Just do a compression test and see where that gets you, if all are good then you can start thinking about re-assembling the valve train. How about the CAMSHAFT?
If all is good then I would replace ALL the pushrods, and ALL the rocker arms.
Keep us informed!
