I ran a solid roller in my 427 for years on the street, it was a Herbert roller, .638/.657 lift, with Norris stainless roller rockers, Bo Laws push rods, and Crane stud girdles. Never had a minutes trouble out of the valve train, checked the adjustment about every 3 months, and SELDOM had to adjust ANYTHING, and even then, only a thousandth or two. That motor saw 7500 on a regular basis, and 8000+ on occasion. The 360ci. SBC I'm building now for my daily driver S10 is getting a mild Comp solid roller too, .525/.525, 224/224@.050.
