push rods

i either bent a push rod or did somthing bad to the top end of my motor, it ticks now.
anybody know of a rough estimate as to how much a new rod will cost? and can i even buy a single push rod? or do i gotta buy a whole new set?
i want the cheapest route out of this dilema

if its just one ticking, the oil pressure is fine, itf the whole things is clattering away there will be no oil pressure, turn your key on there will probably be an oil warning light that comes on for the bulb check. if its on when its running, u got no oil pressure., if it dont have a gauge i would be quite sure there is an idiot light
