Red face 1976 450 sl 107 body 117 engine

hi all i am about to embark on a used mb 450 sl and need some advice fast before i complete the deal.

the guy told me it ran and just needed the battery recharged well we finally got it running after 2 days draining the fuel tank replacing the fuel pump and filter
when it started it knocks and it is coming from the cam on the passenger side the guys friend came over who used to own it and said the lifter stuck and wore the cam lobe off

do i just need to replace cam follower and lifter or would you say the head ans valve need work.

i need a fast answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
