I've got a retrofit solid roller in my '70 "010" block.

I had to buy the cam (obviously), retrofit lifters with the tie bar (expensive.. like $400 bucks shipped), and a cam button for the front of the cam so it doesn't walk forward. Note that a special timing cover is usually required, at least mine is. You can probably rig a normal one to work.

No machine work required.
