I agree with everyone else; that engine had a long period without an oil change. However, as long as you didn't knock any of that stuff loose and into the engine and reinstalled the rockers, pedestals, retainers and pushrods in the exact order you removed them, I don't think you caused any further harm. I had a '72 Sedan deVille in high school with rockers that looked similar condition wise, and when I removed them for cleaning, I didn't reinstall them in the order which I removed them. That was a big mistake, and shortly after I my error I had to install a different engine.
In the Cadillac Serviceman publication, page 23, or the June, 1970 issue, there is an article regarding noisy rockers. They suggest sliding the sheet metal retainer (the thin metal part that is held down under the rocker pedestals) fore or aft to provide more pressure on the rocker producing the noise. If that doesn't work, they recommend removing the rockers and retainer and slightly bending the retainer tabs inward to apply a little more pressure on the rockers to keep them from "walking" on the pedestals, and if that doesn't get rid of the sound, they recommend replacing the retainer. I haven't tried this, but occasionally my '70 makes a very slight rocker tap, so I might give it a shot eventually.
