I don't recall, what rockers are you using? Agree on misleading info. But there's something that is somehow different about your set up that is causing the problem; there are a lot of guys using everything from stock retainers to the same set up you have to going back to the early-style valves and retainers (less damper) that all work w/SA rockers. So my theory is there is (at this point, anyway) the rocker arm might be the fly in the peanut butter.
