One thing I forgot is what Richard (Tech inspector) mentioned, and that is the interfering area of the stud boss could also be ground to remove the interfering material. Bad thing is that this also requires removing the heads to keep debris out of the engine and the valvesprings/retainers.

Since these heads were last on an engine I did a 3 angle valve job on both heads intake and exhaust seats for both heads. The main reason was because the jack ball that owned the vehicle before me put 1.60" valves in 1.50" holes and beat the seats up. I bought the new exhaust valves and cleaned up the old intake valves. I also cleaned the tips of the valve stems and true'd them up and rounded the edges as well. So I know I have opened up some clearances and the pushrods I'm sure need to be re-accounted for as far as the correct length. I was not looking to fix or hide the problem with the rocker arms by lengthening the pushrods but I am sure that I have some clearance I can get by getting the correct pushrod length again and then see where I am at with these new rockers. Hopefully it will be enough.

I finally got my new Proform Roller rockers. They fit much better than the Summit Racing brand. I still need to measure for the correct pushrods but enven the stockers look close, so thats a huge plus!
