Having roller rockers does not mean you have a roller cam. I put roller rocker on my 350. (After market)You would have to pull the intake to see if you had roller lifters or not as well. I do not know of anyway to know for sure unless you tear it gown. You can run the numbers through www.mortec.com and see if your block is listed as being a roller moter.I think this is what i would do. I sure would not tear down a good running motor if i didn`t need to.
Hope this helps!!!And please let us know what you find out. I like to know if a guy gets his question answered or not.

I think an easy way to tell is pull a push rod. I believe roller cams have a lot shorter push rods than the flat cams.
