not of help and hard to believe but once converted 341 desoto adventurer to solids , adj pushrods .
one day would way up ( converted to stick too) push rod came out so hard it made a hole in valve cover ( and spring obviously played no role !)
On your problem probably collapsed / stuck
lifter if hydraulic , allows gap or broken spring

We need more to go on here. What do you mean by "come loose?" Please describe. My guess is that they're probably bent to the point that they rub against the clearance hole in the head and no longer center in the rocker arm.

Is it always the same one(s) that come loose?

Exhaust or intake? Is the valvetrain noisy at idle?

Dave
