Comp Roller Tip Rockers

I purchased a set of Comp Cams Roller Tip Rocker Arms (1412-16) for my 350 Chevy & Performer RPM Heads.

Can anyone tell me if short vavle covers will fit?

That sucks...I have a set of standard size center bolt after market valve covers and have not put the motor together yet. I'm using the roller tips so now what do I do? I thought these would fit but maybe I'm wrong. Anybody else use these with center bolt and whats the cure for this problem?

A few racer buddies have tried it before. They run the centerbolt to perimeter bolt adapters. They use stud girdles too.

GM Performance Parts makes an adapter that allows you to use the traditional two bolt valve covers on the center bolt heads. I think they are around $150.

I have a set of Pro Magnums on my 383 and standard aftermarket cast aluminum center bolt covers. The only problem I had was the baffle/shroud around the PCV port. Had to bend it inward to keep it from hitting the rocker arm.

That sounds like an oil leak waiting to happen.

I wish the aftermarket Chevy head manufacturers would make a head with the Ford valve cover bolt pattern. The could easily cast a few extra bosses around the bottom. They could also make valve covers to match. It wouldn't be hard, and it would eliminate a lot of headache for us gearheads too. They could even do it so you would be able to drill out your existing valve covers.
