One of my vavle lash adjuster srews broke off so when I checked the others I broke few more. Should I just replace them all. The Valves were way out of adjustment. Or is there something else you might think is going on.

How old were they?

Replace them all.

Inspect the rockers and tips of the valves, excessive side play? I have gotten bad adjusters right out of the package on expensive rockers, hopefully just bad hardening procedure.
