Hmm. Chance of wiped cam aside, could the oil passage be full of gook, shutting oil off to those two rockers? Does each rocker get it's oil via holes in the shaft, through holes in the rocker?
Can you drive the oil pump w/a drill to see if they are oiling? If they are oiling, I would look at the lifters. If they are collapsed [check valve clogged and not working], perhaps the rockers got hammered to death?
With everything addressed and problem found, look at two replacement rockers. Those look a little too bad to be re-finished, although sombody may offer welding/refinishing?
Assuming the top of the valves aren't fubar.....
