Don't know what you mean by worse, geometry looks better to me, but the pushrod still isn't long enough. You are moving in the right direction, but looks to need another .050-.100" longer. As far as the retainer to rocker body interference, these are the Diecast Crane Energizer rockers-correct?? They often need grinding for clearance. My stepbrother had to grind his, which totally turned me off to ever using these rockers myself, and he was using a 1.44" Crower spring. Maybe having .060-.080" machined off the retainer diameter would help, there is plenty of material there for this as the 1.460" spring only really needs a 1.380" retainer o.d.
