Tall valve covers on BB Camaro

A buddy of mine is finally switching to a BB in his 67 camaro.
The question came up if tall valve covers on the BB are gonna fit his power brake booster & windshield wiper motor. And be able to remove em for valve adjustments etc.
Any help or pics would be appreciated.

The valve cover will hit unless it is a specially made style for the Camaro. My buddy just bought a new set for his 396 Camaro. They come with a "dent" to clear the vacuum booster. He found a guy who runs one of those Ebay stores and they were quite reasonably priced. Thank the lord for "Ebay" !!
